BERNARDS TWP., NJ _ There will be one more Saturday night performance of Light Opera of New Jersey's production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s comedic "Così fan tutte," directed by David Dollase with musical direction by Jason Tramm, at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 140 South Finley Avenue, in Basking Ridge.

Light Opera of New Jersey continues its 24th Season of operetta and musical theatre with Mozart’s classic opera buffa that tells the frivolous and absurd tale of four young lovers whose lives are being tampered with by their maid and their older mentor, who guide them down a spiraling path of new love and heartache.
The comic antics take place along with some of the most beautiful music Mozart wrote during his short career.
Making his LONJ debut with this production, David Dollase is a director, actor, singer, performance coach and writer with over 35 years experience as a professional in the performing arts. In addition to directing plays, musical theater, opera and operetta, Dollase has performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, on multiple Broadway national tours and appeared in regional theaters across the country as well as several network television series.
