On 4 November 1847, the great German composer Felix Mendelssohn died tragically from seizures. He left behind him countless amazing musical works, a family, and Jenny Lind- a friend? Perhaps. A Swedish opera singer, world renouned? Yes of course. But was she more than that? It has been said that 'absence of evidence is not evidence of absence', and this story, told from Jenny's view explores the depth of history and a (rather improper) Victorian romance washed away by time.
