Pro-Israel protesters disrupted the opening performance of the New York City Metropolitan Opera’s production of “The Death of Klinghoffer,” a controversial opera that critics say condones anti-Semitism and terrorism against Jews.

The Met’s production of the opera, which begun its run on Monday evening, has been engulfed in controversy for months, with pro-Israel leaders and members of the Jewish community accusing the prominent theater company of staging an offensive and anti-Semitic production.
