A protester holds a sign across from Lincoln Center and the New York Metropolitan Opera during a demonstration in New York, October 20, 2014. New York's Metropolitan Opera was bracing for its most tumultuous opening in decades on Monday as protestors demonstrated against "The Death of Klinghoffer," the John Adams opera about the 1985 hijacking of a cruise ship by Palestinian guerillas. The opera, seen by some as a humanist masterpiece and by others as anti-Semitic, depicts the murder of Leon Klinghoffer, a Jewish man on a cruise with his wife aboard the Achille Lauro. After his death, the killers threw the body of the retired New Yorker overboard along with his wheelchair. REUTERS/Mike Segar (UNITED STATES - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS SOCIETY) less
