As the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s acclaimed production of Fiddler on the Roof readies for an uptown transfer, the theatre company will partner with New York City Opera to co-produce the previously announced world premiere of Dear Erich.

Performances will begin January 9 at the Edmond J. Safra Hall in the Museum of Jewish Heritage, where it is set to run through January 13.

Mikhaela Mahony will direct Ted Rosenthal’s jazz opera, which uses musical aesthetics of the 1930s and ‘40s to explore his discovery of letters between his grandmother and his father during the rise of the Nazi Party.

The production will feature sets by John Farrell, costumes by Janet O’Neill, and lighting design by Susan Roth.
