Love makes you do crazy things. Romeo and Juliet sacrificed themselves for one another. Cyrano de Bergerac, well, he gave up his girl to another man. Army Captain Silvio? He disguises himself over and over again to win over his one, true love. Join him in 19th century Padua, Italy, as he attempts to conquer the home of the city’s mayor and his lovesick daughter Laurette in Georges Bizet’s Doctor Miracle. The silly things we do for love. Doctor Miracle is a comedy sung in English and stars singers from Southern Methodist University and the University of North Texas. The presentation is sponsored by Texas Instruments Inc., The David M. Crowley Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts and The Rosewood Foundation. The show takes place Friday and October 14 at the Dallas Children’s Theater, 5938 Skillman St. Tickets are $12. For more information, call 214-443-1000 or visit dallasopera.org.
