**Thanks to my good friend, Ian, for letting me steal his photo. He went to the performance the day after I did and was able to get a lot more varied pictures than I could. I’m the sure the picture doesn’t align 100% with the music, but at least it gives a better sense of what the entire ceremony was like.
