Can’t make it to the WSNC Meeting on April 5th? Here is an earlier opportunity to see Hilan Warshaw’s film Wagner’s Jews. The documentary is being screened during the 19th Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. It will be screened at the Pleasant Hill Century 16 Theater.
Wagner’s Jews 10:30 a.m.
USA/Germany, 2013, 55 minutes, English/German/Hebrew/subtitles
Bay Area Premiere! Although German composer Richard Wagner’s anti-Semitic writings were embraced by the Nazis, he maintained close relationships with his Jewish colleagues and assistants, including piano prodigy Carl Tausig, conductor Hermann Levi, producer Angelo Neumann and pianist Joseph Rubinstein (who lived with Wagner’s family for many years). This provocative documentary also examines the continuing debate over performing Wagner in Israel.
