It’s often said that what matters is the singer, not the song, which is why music fans are still moved by Bing Crosby’s rendition of “99 Bottles of Beer.” Savor voices that could sing the phone book with today’s GrouponLive deal to see Love Makes the World Go 'Round, presented by Opera on the James at the Joy and Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre of Academy of Fine Arts in Lynchburg.

Now in its sixth season, Opera on the James regales ears with the majestic beauty of operatic works performed by nationally renowned singers. Love Makes the World Go 'Round corrals the talents of four acclaimed vocalists—Allison Pohl, Brendan Daly, Adelaide Muir Trombetta, and John Dooley—who have collectively shattered chandeliers and monocles at prestigious companies such as the Colorado Opera, the Boston Lyric Opera, and the Bronx Opera. Throughout the evening, the quartet of euphonic belters unleashes its pipes on a program that showcases popular songs from the classical opera canon as well as Broadway show tunes. In the elegant interior of the Joy and Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre, oak flooring stylishly cushions feet while restored brick walling induces wolves to seek out easier, straw-built concert halls to crash.
