Wagner and Judaism

On Sunday, Barenboim undertakes the first opera of his second Ring cycle in Berlin and his first with the Staatsoper in the Schiller Theater. Today and tomorrow, Barenboim and a small group of selected musicologists will discuss various aspects of Wagner's anti-Semitism. The satellite topics covered range from Nietzsche to Meyerbeer to Zionism. The Wagner Symposium will take place in two sessions in the foyer of the Schiller Theater with free admission to all, Saturday at 11:00 and Sunday at 11:00. Barenboim opens the discussion himself this morning with a lecture on "Wagner, Israel and the Palestinians," which will soon be available in German and English here on his website. The discussions will take place in German only.
