Help Make our LONJ Garden Grow!




November 15, 2022

Dear Lovers of Art,

We are delighted to announce that we have an ambitious season filled with professional productions that will move and inspire audiences of all ages! These plans are made possible through your generous gifts to our Annual Appeal. As LONJ moves to new heights as a professional regional opera/operetta and musical theater company, your support is essential to our future.   

Following the successful start to the season with the concert version of Candide, our upcoming season includes a production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni, directed by Stefanos Koroneos, performed at the Sieminski Theater at Fellowship Village on February 24 at 7:30 PM and February 26 at 2:30 PM.  Stefanos is the General and Artistic Director of the Teatro Grattaciello (Manhattan). Stefanos has directed/produced acclaimed productions both in the United States and Europe. Starring in Don Giovanni will be Suchan Kim (Don Giovanni), Lisa Algonzzini (Donna Elvira), Madison Zahorsky (Donna Anna), Diego Valdez (Don Ottavio), Courtney San Martin (Zerlina), Oliver Poveda (Leporello), Patrick Scully (Masetto), and (Steven Fredericks (Commendatore).

On July 14-16 and July 21-23, we will present the 2014 Tony Award Winner for best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, at the South Orange Performing Arts Center in South Orange, NJ. 

Your gifts also allow us to provide outreach programs to schools, senior living facilities, local libraries, and other spaces throughout Northern and Central New Jersey. LONJ is also committed to training and mentoring young singers in the high school and college age years through Master Classes and other Young Artist programs. We feel the world of fine singing and performing should be shared everywhere!
