Summary
Richard Wagner was notoriously anti-Semitic, and his writings on the Jews were later embraced by Hitler and the Nazis. But many of Wagner's closest associates were Jews-- young musicians who became personally devoted to him and provided crucial help to his career. Filmed on location in Germany, Switzerland, and Italy, Wagner's Jews interweaves archival sources, visual re-enactments, interviews and performances by Wagner's Jewish colleagues-- the first such performances on film. Parallel to the historical narrative, the film explores the ongoing controversy over performing Wagner's music in Israel
