Watching opera even better than expected

I thought I knew about opera - studied it as part of my music education, listened to arias, read librettos. Then I saw Rimrock Opera's production of Rossini's "The Barber of Seville." What a treat!

What I knew prior to seeing the live performance was just a shadow of the real thing. Rimrock Opera presented great vocals, accompanied by a live orchestra, and lots of laughs, something that we all can use right now. Bravos for a great job by both the cast and Doug Nagel, general director of Rimrock Opera, and both artistic director and producer for "Barber."

"La Boheme," coming April 24-25, 2010, is already on my calendar.
