Protestors wearing yellow stars and carrying anti-Gelb placards failed to fill the plaza outside the Metropolitan Opera yesterday as blck-tie patrons arrived for a season-opening gala.
Despite busing in classes of schoolchildren from the outer boroughs, the number of demonstrators was estimated by our observers at barely one thousand. On the plus side, the demo was peaceful and light-hearted. One congressman called for cuts to Lincoln Center’s public funding (he will have to search hard to find any).
The Death of Klinghoffer will open next month.
