In the fall of 1986 we were contacted by the artistic directors
of both Tiffany & Co. and the San Francisco Opera. There
was a competition between the branches of Tiffany's and the
Opera companies in New York and San Francisco,
launching a marketing campaign to set off the new opera
season and some exquisite new pieces of jewelry that
Tiffany's was offering.
Having worked with the San Francisco Opera before on their
children's events, we were both flattered and honored. We
were to select different characters from our shows to
represent past operas performed by the San Francisco Opera
as well as their new upcoming season.
The first four windows we set in were for the history of
bygone performances which were featured for a month. We
then set in four windows featuring the upcoming season.
Seven operas were represented with the stunning jewelry,
with San Francisco (and OUR windows)
winning the friendly competition.
They were enjoyed by all.
