Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre presents the U.S. premiere of Fanny and Alexander
, its brilliant stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's Oscar-winning hit film. Set at the turn of the 20th century and inspired in part by the influential Swedish filmmaker's own upbringing, this epic drama follows three generations of the well-to-do Ekdahl family, led by an eccentric widow and her three sons. The eldest and his wife run a theater -- a nurturing world of fantastical delights beloved by their two young children, Fanny and Alexander. But after a tragic turn of events, their mother remarries, thrusting the two siblings into the gloomy, austere home of their strict stepfather. Under his unforgiving rule, Fanny and Alexander become captive prisoners, until the rest of the Ekdahl clan attempts to intervene with the help of a little magic. The Royal Dramatic Theatre brings to glorious life Bergman's very personal work, which delightfully explores the themes of faith and truth, imagination and dreams. The show is performed in Swedish with English supertitles.
