Snapchat has introduced a new filter, where you can see what your face would look like if you were the opposite sex... so we tried it out on a few classical composers.
Ever wondered what you might look like as the opposite sex? The new Snapchat filter gives women facial hair and a square jaw to look like men, and men more delicate features and long hair to look like women.
So, we thought we’d test it out on our favourite composers...
By night, Puccini wrote some of the most heart-wrenching arias. But by day, he went about his duties as the headmistress of a 1940s boarding school.
Is it OK to slightly fancy Bach as a woman?
Handel makes a very matronly lady...
Female Ludwig is a very sulky teenager.
Frédéric Chopin wrote some of the most beautiful music for solo piano... and also dabbled in anime.
Clara is significantly less doe-eyed with a hint of facial fuzz.
Flutter your eyelashes at us again, Wolfgang...
Anyone else seeing a hint of Mrs Doubtfire here?
