The Unforgiven: Wagner, Jews, and Antisemitism
The Benjamin (Yale 1962) and Barbara Zucker Lecture Series

Notwithstanding Richard Wagner's infamy as one of the most vituperative anti-Semites of his age, a large number of Jews embraced his music, chief among them Theodor Herzl. This talk will try to untangle some of the complexities surrounding Wagner's relationships with Jews, without seeking a uniform reading of a contradictory record.
