Washington National Opera Throws Japanese Themed Ball

"On June 7, the Washington National Opera held its annual fete, The Opera Ball, at the residence of Japanese Ambassador Kenichiro Sasae and his wife, Nobuko Sasae. More than 500 guests, including the District’s biggest opera fan, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sens. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), and Newt and Callista Gingrich, were treated to four opera performances and then dinner prepared by the Japanese embassy chefs under a custom-made chandelier of 1,000 origami paper cranes — a symbol of eternal good luck."
