Richard Wagner: Adolf Hitler’s Favorite Composer

Born in Germany on May 22, 1813, Richard Wagner went on to become one of the world’s most influential and controversial composers. He is famous for both his epic operas, including the four-part, 18-hour Ring Cycle, as well as for his anti-semitic writings, which, posthumously, made him a favorite of Adolf Hitler. He’s also featured in films including the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter movies. There is evidence that Wagner’s music was played at the Dachau concentration camp to “re-educate” the prisoners. Wagner had a tumultuous love life, which involved several scandalous affairs. He died of a heart attack in Venice on February 13, 1883.
