Party Lines Slideshow: Anjelica Huston, Rufus Wainwright, Patricia Clarkson, and More at the Met’s Opening Night

At the Metropolitan Opera opening-night gala, a bunch of celebrities showed up to take in a viewing of Wagner's Das Rheingold, which includes a scene in which the characters known as the Rhinemaidens dangle 30 feet above the stage. This felt like a good opportunity to ask famous people about their most daring feats. Not to spoil the rest of the slideshow, but Anjelica Huston had by far the best answer: "Hovering over Michael Jackson in Captain EO. Rhinemaidens have nothing on that."
