cacophony goes to the opera

A member of the san francisco cacophony society works for the SF
Opera and got us about 30 tickets to tonights surreal production of
Hansel and Gretel. But being a cacophony event, we dressed up for the
occasion. There were witches, and a couple of people in lederhosen, two
demon chefs carrying around cooking pots containing baby dolls and
rubber rats. I went as a cow, because, well, I have a cow outfit. And
cows like opera too. I -really- would have liked to share photos of the
caco crew admist the bemused opera normals but even in the lobby there
wasn't enough light for this darn toy camera. So here's a pic of the
ceiling of the opera house and some photos from room before i left. (The
opera was cool, except for the singing).

Update: here's a link to someone else's photos of the event: Cacophony Goes To THe Opera
