Gaetano Donizetti's comic opera, "L'elisir d'Amore" tells a tale about love, passion, and unrequited love, seasoned with laughs, colorful characters,  gorgeous music, and a happy ending!   The Knoxville Opera presents a production of it on Valentine's Day evening, Friday night at 8pm and also Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm.  In this interview, Melony Dodson talks with stage director, Brian Deedrick, about this entertaining opera and why, perhaps, it is the perfect "first opera" to see and hear.
