The nationalist German culture that cherished Richard Wagner as a prophet of national identity saw the medieval Teutonic past enshrined in his operas as blueprints for the future. Yet the time and place that birthed the Aryan icon Meistersinger was also the source of an international, racial, and cultural hybrid which evolved into the quintessentially Jewish popular musical form known as Klezmer.
