An Egyptian employee protests inside the Cairo Opera House, in Egypt, Wednesday, May 29, 2013. The Cairo Opera House has become a new battleground between supporters and opponents of Egypt's Islamist president, this time fighting over the direction of the Middle East's oldest music institution. The new culture minister fired the opera's head in what he calls a campaign to bring in new blood across the artistic scene. But her staff refuse any new boss and have closed the curtain on all performances, accusing the minister of bending to Islamist pressure. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)
