Opening January 24, 2014, Stony Hill Players will be performing Mozart’s comedic masterpiece, 'The Marriage of Figaro,' sung in English and set in modern day New Jersey.

Stony Hill Players, Summit New Jersey's most treasured community theater, has been enthralling audiences with fully staged operas since 1947.  

This timeless opera has been described by critics as “so engrossing, you almost forget you’re watching an opera!” The opera opens with Figaro, the trusted advisor to a senator, preparing for his wedding to Suzanna, a member of the senator’s staff.  The Senator has tired of his own wife and is  scheming to obtain the favors of Susanna, while forcing Figaro to marry another.

Meanwhile, the Senator’s wife, aware of his deceitfulness, conspires with Susanna and Figaro to expose the Senator’s plans and lead the wayward husband back to his faithful wife.  

Mozart's music, played masterfully by a full chamber orchestra, is miraculous, as always, and elevates the hilarious story from mere comedy into a triumph. Stony Hill Players is located at the Oakes Center at 120 Morris Avenue, Summit, NJ.

Performance dates are Jan 24, 25, 26 31, Feb 1 & 2. Show times are Friday and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sunday Matinees at 3:00 pm.
