Wagner Festival, but hold the Wagner

Last month The Ambassador had several posts about a recent controversy regarding LA's up-coming Ring Festival. Perhaps the opponents would appreciate the programming for the Bard Music Festival's "Wagner and His World". The featured performances are Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots & Mendelssohn’s oratorio St. Paul, works by Jewish composers publicly reviled by Wagner.

This came to my attention via articles in the Wall Street Journal & the Financial Times.
