The Death of Klinghoffer at the MET tonight
The Death of Klinghoffer, music by John Adams and the libretto by Alice Goodman is scheduled to premiere at the Metropolitan Opera tonight despite a massive protest outside on the Lincoln Center Plaza. The HD and Saturday afternoon radio broadcast, as well as the Sirius transmissions, have been cancelled. Is the opera Anti-Semitic? Is it pro-PLO? Make up your mind by listening to the work here.
