L.A. Pol Calls Wagner “A Nazi”

Calling Richard Wagner a “Nazi composer,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich has demanded that Los Angeles Opera substitute works by other composers in next year’s Ring Festival LA. He’s not the only one upset about the performance of Wagner’s epic. “Holocaust survivors and their families have contacted supervisors in recent weeks to express outrage at the festival. Some have threatened to picket.” Which leads to the metaphysical question: how do you have a Ring Festival without Wagner?
