Phantom of the Oprea
For 10 years now Noah and I have been wanting to go see Phantom of the Opera. We we wanted to see it in San Fransisco, then in New York City, in Las Vegas and finally we got our chance to go see it and jumped on it. I met Noah at his office and we exchanged gifts with each other. Then we went to Memo's Mexican Restaurant for a nice romantic dinner. We met the chef and he took our picture. We then took BART into the city to the San Fransisco Orpheum Theater. What an amazing building. Built in 1926 this 12th century Spanish palace is revealed when you walk into it. Full-bodied lions are on the ceiling in the auditorium and mythical figures from Spanish folklore surround as you move down the aisle. The ornate sun with twinkling stars light up your seat from above in the elaborate cathedral that is the theatre. We really enjoyed watching Phantom and the cast did an amazing job. It was a wonderful way to spend our 10 year anniversary together.
