Picks: ‘The Elixir of Love’

[OPERA] Saturday-Sunday, March 16-17

Here’s the Cliffs Notes version of this opera: Poor guy loves rich girl; rich girl won’t give him a second look. A sergeant shows up and tries to swoop on rich girl. Poor guy ain’t havin’ it, and professes his love. She’s still not interested, so he drugs her with a magic potion, but the potion is bunk. Only when poor guy feigns disinterest is rich girl’s interest piqued. Typical. Saturday at 7:30 p.m, Sunday at 1 p.m.; Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall at UNLV, 895-2787, pac.unlv.edu, $15-$25
