Discussion | You Will Not Play Wagner: Tel Aviv University professor on Wagner's influence after the Holocaust (virtual)


Richard Wagner's music is banned in Israel on the grounds that the German composer was promoted during the Nazi era as Hitler's favorite composer. In "You Will Not Play Wagner" by South African playwright Victor Gordon, a young Israeli conductor chooses to perform Wagner in the final concert of a prestigious musical competition. A patron of the competition, a Jewish Holocaust survivor who lives in America, resolutely stands against the idea and refuses to be convinced otherwise, leading to an international conflict of interest behind the scenes. Join this pre-recorded reading of an excerpt from the play, followed by a scholarly talk with playwright Victor 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.

Theater | Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet: One of His Finest Plays (virtual)


Proud and tempestuous Cornelius Melody (Con) owns a run-down inn and tavern near Boston in 1828. Laden with debt, Con clings to his tenuous identity as a landed gentleman and war hero and chastises his wife and daughter for actions that expose the family's humble Irish origins. When his daughter, Mary, falls in love with a wealthy American guest at their inn, Con's pride drives him to an explosive reckoning with his true place in the New World. Eugene O'Neill completed the play in 1942 but it was not performed until 1958, after his death. It has been produced on Broadway four times. Directed by Ciaran O'Reilly With Belle Aykroyd, Ciaran Byrne, Robert Cuccioli, Kate Forbes, Mary McCann, Andy Murray, David O'Hara, Tim Ruddy, David Sitler, and John C. Vennema
