|The city was laid out like a gigantic letter C (2 miles in diameter), with The Man at its focus, and with a large, mostly empty stretch of playa in the middle . Dotting this mostly empty playa were many installations, including this garden of unearthly plastic trees. What the picture didn't pick up were the text on the white signs marking the entrance to this garden, "Hope", "Wish", "Dream", and "Pray."
On the right, in the distance behind the dude on the cycle, were the four towers of the opera set. At 3 AM, Sunday morning, the opera finally took place under the full lunar eclipse - as part of the opera, the set was burned.
