Felix Mendelssohn, the German-Jewish composer who wrote the iconic Wedding March, must renounce the faith of his ancestors in order to be accepted to music school in the prejudiced 1800s classical music world. German audiences love Mendelssohn’s music, which drives Richard Wagner insane with jealousy. In an ironic twist, the music of these two rivals has been joined together for eternity: for every bride who walks down the aisle to Wagner’s Here Comes the Bride, most exit the chapel to Mendelssohn’s Wedding March. When Wagner’s beautiful daughter Elsie falls in love with the handsome Mendelssohn, Wagner aims to silence Mendelssohn’s music.
