I was deeply honored to be the Leading Lady in New York City Opera’s world premier of Dear Erich, composed by the brilliant jazz musician Ted Rosenthal. It is the true story of his family discovered through over 200 letters written by his grandmother Herta (played by me) to his father Erich during the rise of Hitler’s power in Germany.

This is the opening scene to Dear Erich.
