INDIANOLA, Iowa - Thousands of people from 38 states will visit a central Iowa attraction this summer and it’s not the state fair.

If you`ve never been to the Des Moines Metro Opera, you`re missing out on a festival that`s been gaining lots of national attention.

Dan Winters went to Simpson College to spend Three Minutes in the Chair with the man who runs the show.

Michael Egel has a full-time staff of eight people but it takes more than 250 people to put on the summer festival.
