Opera Orlando is out and about this weekend with an "On The Town" event featuring a performance with some unexpected cowboy flair.

For one thing, Puccini's "The Girl of the Golden West" starts in a saloon...to be precise, it starts at Church Street Station's Cheyenne Saloon. At least, Opera Orlando's version does.

Opera Orlando’s executive and artistic director Gabriel Preisser shares the specifics with 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston.
