NOVA Center for the Performing Arts -- Billings, Montana

Douglas NagelNOVA Center for the Performing Arts and Rimrock Opera announce a “Tribute to Douglas Nagel” to be held on Sunday, April 18th at 6:00PM. The event will focus on the many contributions that Billings native Doug Nagel has provided to our community.

Doug was instrumental in developing Rimrock Opera Company which has provided operatic music since the year 2000 in Billings. With his powerful bass voice, he has performed on stage internationally and in numerous cities in the United States.

The role of Nosferatu was one of Doug’s many memorable performances at the Alberta Bair Theater in Billings in 2004. Rimrock Opera Company produced the world premiere opera, “Nosferatu” in 2004 and reprised the opera in 2018. Click here for photographs of Doug taken during his carreer.

As a vocal teacher and college professor at MSU-Billings, Doug has guided many students towards careers in music education and performance. As a Board member for NOVA Center for the Performing Arts, Doug has contributed his expertise in organization, production and directing.

We invite the public to NOVA to greet and wish Doug well with his retirement from teaching and plan to move to California.  And if you are so inclined, Doug wishes that you make a donation to NOVA in his honor.

NOVA is located at 2317 Montana Avenue in Billings.
