Wilhelm Richard Wagner was a German composer, theater director, polemicist, and conductor who is chiefly known for his operas. Unlike most opera composers, Wagner wrote both the libretto and the music for each of his stage works. He was considered to be antisemitic and racist and many believe that there were antisemitic tropes in his operas.
