On Sept. 27, I had the rare privilege of traveling with a group of nearly 40 students to see "The Barber of Seville" by the Rimrock Opera Company. Many of these students had never seen an opera before - and they all came away delighted at the experience. "Barber" was the most accessible and lively opera we have seen since the group started attending several years ago.
Cultural experiences such as the ones provided by the Rimrock Opera Company are invaluable to our students. Thanks to ROC, we in Colstrip are seeing the birth of a new generation of opera fans.
