Dear Erich
A Jazz Opera by Ted Rosenthal

New York, NY 10280-1502

In wartime Germany and Chicago, a story of tragedy, love, and redemption. The discovery of over 200 letters written in Germany between 1938 and 1941 by his grandmother, Herta Rosenthal, to his father, Erich, a Jewish scholar who escaped to the United States, inspired Ted Rosenthal to create Dear Erich. This jazz opera tells the heartbreaking story of a family's dual fates: a son's journey and a new life in the New World, and the cruel demise of his family at the hands of the Nazis which he was powerless to stop. In English with English supertitles.
