“You Will Not Play Wagner” Reading And Discussion

October 29 , 2:00 pm

Richard Wagner

Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust presents “You Will Not Play Wagner,” a reading and discussion
about the play by South African playwright Victor Gordon about a young Israeli conductor who chooses to perform the music of Richard Wagner. A pre-recorded reading of an excerpt from the play will be followed by a scholarly talk with Gordon, director Roy Horovitz, and Tel Aviv University professor Moshe Zuckermann on Wagner’s influence after the Holocaust and the broader implications of censorship in Israel.
