Dear Lovers of Art,

LONJ is 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 support of 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.  

Our upcoming season includes a traditional production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, directed by Giorgio Lalov, performed in the Union County Performing Arts Center (Feb. 17) and in the Sieminski Theater, Basking Ridge (Feb. 18).  We will also be presenting Disney’s family classic, Beauty and the Beast, directed by Joseph Hayward, on July 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 in the South Orange Performing Arts Center.

We are also delighted to announce the second season of our “Opera for All” program that provides 10% of our mainstage tickets, at no cost, to underserved members of our community. This program was begun with a seed grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Your support also allows us to provide our Savoy Faire program, a vital outreach to senior living facilities, local libraries, and other spaces throughout Northern and Central New Jersey. We feel the world of vocal art should be shared with all!  

Please consider donating to our Annual Appeal to ensure our continued standards of excellence. There are various ways to donate. Visit our website here for more information.

We look forward to seeing you at all our upcoming performances and thank you for supporting our mission to provide great art to the residents of our region. Here's a SHORT VIDEO of some highlights from our past season that we hope you'll enjoy.
