True love is hotly tested in the rollicking French operetta La Périchole, which hits the stage at Miller Outdoor Theatre today. Based on the life of singer Micaela Villegas, La Périchole follows a couple of young street singers in colonial Peru, La Périchole and Piquillo. They’re in love but too poor to afford even a marriage license. That’s not their only problem. The rich and spiteful Don Andrès de Ribeira wants to take La Périchole as his mistress. Young up-and-coming singers from the Franco-American Vocal Academy make up the cast. 8 p.m. 6000 Hermann Park Drive. For information, call 281-373-3386 or visit www.milleroutdoortheatre.com. Free.
