Left-wing activists gathered outside the Center for Performing Arts in Tel Aviv Monday evening calling for a boycott on Israel while a group of right-wing activists waved flags across from them.

Shortly before the premier of the opera "Porgy and Bess," at the Center for the Performing Arts in Tel Aviv, which was set to be performed by actors from the Capetown Opera House at in South Africa, left-wing waved signs and shouted: "Palestine, life there is not easy," and "Fascism is at the door."

The activists, using their own version of a song featured in opera, chanted: "Today you came to hear a story from long ago, a quite painful story, that touches the heart, oh, that reminds me of here. Stop the apartheid, enough, it's time."
