Engaging panel discussion co-presented by Weinstein JCC and Virginia Opera to confront the life and works of Richard Wagner. Wagner created the most monumental operatic experience and yet, rightful criticism of his personal anti-Semitism has escalated since the horrors of WWII.

We will ask questions relevant to today's culture: How do we separate a creator from his work? How does the context of creation change the performance we see? Why perform these pieces at all?
