Peter Gelb puts Met on war footing for Mondaymain
An insider tells us:
At the close of the rehearsal today Gelb addressed the company to alert them that trouble is expected Monday night. Police will be on standby. Big demonstration expected on Amsterdam Ave.
No visitors will be permitted backstage– no friends, family, fans, agents, etc. Nobody! Be sure to carry company ID cards. If there is an interruption in the audience the cause will be found and removed. If necessary the music will be stopped and resumed after disturbance removed. High security in house. There are eight performances of Klinghoffer.
