The painted fire curtain of the Chicago Opera House. It depicts the parade scene from Aida. The interior decoration details were created by American artist Jules Guerin in a palette of salmon pinks, roses, olives, golds and bronzes. Come early to examine the interior decor and bring binoculars!
I happened to be over along the lakefront for a 5:56am sunrise in early September and thought you folks would enjoy seeing a photo. The gentleman who often sits on a bench facing this breakwater was there. We spoke a little bit. Don't know his story. Some day I will pause longer and learn.
