AAJ: I know you are proud of this project and none of us can appreciate how personal some of this is, to open a hidden chapter in your family history. Hopefully there is a sense of healing in the creation of this work.

TR: Thank you, I think that it is one family's story, but in some ways, it is many, many people's family's story, in different ways. I hope people will be touched by it and I am very proud to have gone through this.
Dear Erich has fifteen characters and eleven instrumentalists, which include Rosenthal on piano, drummer Tim Horner, trumpeter Tony Kadleck, bassist Thomson Kneeland, multi-reed players Andrew Sterman and Mark Lopeman, along with a trombonist and string quartet.

The world premiere of Ted Rosenthal's jazz opera Dear Erich is scheduled for January 9, 10, 12 and 13 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. More information can be found at dearerich.com.
