Jews at Bayreuth

The plucky Israel Chamber Orchestra has shown their eydl character by performing at the one hundredth Wagner festival in Bayreuth: “Germany opens taboo-shattering Wagner festival.” Lambasted by Wagner haters and the perennially aggrieved, the orchestra’s decision helps to chisel away further the taboo against Wagner in the Israeli community. Good for them. Wagner is celebrated for his music, not for his political opinions or for the fact that he was beloved by National Socialists generations after his death.
