Here’s the article:
You know there’s something wrong when we can’t have a night of opera without protestors.
Seriously though, what has this world come to?
Basically, the Metropolitan Opera Gala night was Russian themed (first mistake).
Protestors have the right to protest against the Metropolitan Opera, located in New York mind you, if they feel it.
I don’t think it was smart for their Gala night to be Russian themed. Especially due to, as it said in the novel, “‘They were protesting a new Russian law that bans ‘propaganda on nontraditional sexual relationships.'”
The Southern part of New York, where Manhattan and all big businesses reside, is an overwhelmingly Democratic, liberally-leaning area. The theme for there Gala was altogether shocking.
I am not against the protestors, but I am disappointed that in America we have something to protest against, even at an opera event.
The moral of the story is this: don’t base your Gala night at the Metropolitan Opera on anything Russian when there is a “war on Russian gays” currently being posed.
