Yes, opera can be funny, and The Elixir of Love delivers up the laughs in this presentation by Houston Grand Opera. It's a case of "be careful what you wish for" when a smitten man purchases a love potion to try to win over the village beauty. With music by Gaetano Donizetti and libretto by Felice Romani, this comic opera has stood the test of time it's back for a two-night-run on the hill. It's sung in Italian with projected English translation; Friday's show is captioned and Saturday's is audio-described.
