About

Fanny and Alexander - U.S. PREMIERE
Directed by Stefan Larsson

"A lavish production. This is theater about theater at its best!"
--The Wall Street Journal
 
Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre presents the U.S. premiere of Fanny and Alexander, its acclaimed stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's four-time Academy Award–winning film, inspired in part by the influential Swedish filmmaker's own upbringing.

Set at the turn of the 20th century, this epic drama follows three generations of the well-to-do Ekdahl family, led by an eccentric, widowed matriarch and her three sons. The eldest and his wife run a theater--a nurturing world of fantastical delights to 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 bishop 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.

Exploring themes of faith and truth, imagination and dreams, the Royal Dramatic Theatre brings to glorious life this most personal project of the late Bergman, the company's one-time manager and frequent guest director for more than half a century.

In Swedish with English supertitles.

 
Part of Nordic Cool 2013.
