On a recent Sunday evening I dined with friends to songs and arias at Cafe Italia on Montana Avenue. Doug Nagel brought his Rimrock Opera cast of singers to the cafe for a preview of the upcoming "Barber of Seville" Sept. 26-27, and the spring production of "La Boheme."
Hearing these wonderful voices ringing out in the intimacy of a cafe was a joyful and special occasion. World cities have nothing on us here in Billings.
Thanks to Doug Nagel and the singers of the Rimrock Opera. I hope this Cafe Italia opera evening becomes a tradition.
