Candid Candace: Lyric Gala's 'Midnight in Paris'
For the 29th annual Fantasy of the Opera Gala on Feb. 9, the Lyric's Guild Board transformed the Civic Opera House into 1920s Paris for this year's theme, "Midnight in Paris." More than 700 patrons in black-tie attire sipped Champagne among French-inspired sights that included a two-story twinkling Eiffel Tower, a Moulin Rouge nightclub, strolling mimes and cancan dancers.
