    Beth is attending tonight's Met Opera Gala opening. Jewish protestors are there to condemn anti-Semitic play " The Death of Klinghoffer". Beth was wailing at Howard that his people are ruining her red carpet debut of her formal gown.

    With the Metropolitan Opera’s new season set to open Monday night, protesters are calling for one show to be cancelled.

    The opera in question, “The Death of Klinghoffer,” composed by the contemporary American musician John Adams, tells the story of the 1985 Palestinian terrorist hijacking of the Italian cruise ship, Achille Lauro, and the subsequent murder of a disabled Jewish passenger, Leon Klinghoffer.

    The opera says the work is art and gives a voice to both sides in the conflict.

    A crowd of about 300 Jewish demonstrators outside the Met’s home at Lincoln Center called it anti-Semitic for showing sympathy to the terrorists who killed Klinghoffer.

    “I think it’s disgusting that they would show such an offensive opera,” said Maxine Weisenfeld, 17. “I’m all for free speech but this is too far. It’s completely anti-Semitic.”

    Mimi Friedman, 86, who escaped Poland with her family to Palestine and immigrated to the U.S. in the 40s, said she wouldn’t consider seeing the opera.

    “Why would I see something that’s so vile?” she asked.

    Sandy Tenzer planned to withdraw support from the Met in protest, saying: “This is a disgrace.”

    The Boston Symphony Orchestra canceled a scheduled performance of the opera, in part because some claim the piece was too sympathetic to Muslim terrorists.

    In June, the Met cancelled plans to hold a November simulcast of the opera to cinemas around the world amid fears that it could fan anti-Semitism in the current world climate. Opera officials made the decision after discussions with the Anti-Defamation League.

    “The Death of Klinghoffer” is currently scheduled to be performed on select dates from October 20 through November 15.

    Sounds like the feel good hit of the summer!

    Beth's gonna have to post her much needed nightcap glass of wine back at the chimney after this exasperating and trying night.

    There's two sides to pushing a crippled old man in a wheelchair off a cruise ship?

    Actually, Beef might be the perfect one to see this play.

    She's been extremely accommodating to both sides of the Arab/Jewish conflict at different points in her life.



    Allegedly. :sex:

    I don't think that's the question.

    I think the question is, straw or spoon?
