Fanny (London, The Watermill Theatre, 2024) | Playbill




The overdue story of the other Mendelssohn, Fanny imagines that Fanny Mendelssohn intercepts a letter addressed to ‘F. Mendelssohn’ inviting Felix to play for Queen Victoria. As the true composer of the song "Italien", she decides to hide the letter, don her brother’s clothes, and take his place at the palace…cueing a race across Europe and a furious Felix.

Directed by Katie-Ann McDonough
