Music Seattle Opera at the Arctic
On February 23, 1945, American soldiers raised this flag at Iwo Jima.
On July 20, 1969, American astronauts planted this flag on the moon.
And yesterday, at 9:30 am, Charles Cossé, outdoorsman, president of Cossé International Securities, and trustee for the Seattle Opera, planted this flag at the North Pole.
From the press release: “Seattle Opera’s flag will not be left at the Pole. Conscious of the potential impact on the environment of leaving items in the Arctic, Cossé plans to return the flag to Seattle Opera to be placed in the company’s archives.”
The combination of luxury, frivolity, and conscientiousness is just… amazing.
