Tenors & Terrorists Protesters Decry Staging of Klinghoffer on Met's Opening Night
Today in New York, protesters have gathered to denounce the Metropolitan Opera’s staging of The Death of Klinghoffer, a dramatization of the murder of an elderly, wheelchair-bound Jew that is more than a little sympathetic to the terrorists who killed him.
The Met’s Staging of Klinghoffer Should Be Scrapped
Responding to public outrage, The Met has canceled global simulcasts of its staging of The Death of Klinghoffer in 2,000 theaters and 65 countries—a clear admission of the opera’s potential to spread hatred. The eight New York performances should be canceled as well.
