When a teacher at his New Jersey high school loaned Eric Einhorn George Gershwin’s “Blue Monday,” the brief jazz opera became an ear worm.
“It was like the skies had opened,” said Einhorn, 32. “I felt a connection to the piece, and it was something I’ve always wanted to do.”
Einhorn, who has worked on productions at the Metropolitan Opera, has in recent years pursued smaller stage works through On Site Opera, a venture he founded that is applying for nonprofit status.
