Lincoln Center Theater will reopen its production of Intimate Apparel this fall!
Lincoln Center Theater presents its first opera, Intimate Apparel, with music by Ricky Ian Gordon, libretto by Lynn Nottage (based on her play of the same name), and directed by Bartlett Sher.
Set in turn of the century New York, Intimate Apparel tells the story of Esther, a lonely, single African-American woman who makes her living sewing beautiful corsets and ladies’ undergarments. Seeking love and romance, Esther embarks on a letter writing relationship with a mysterious suitor laboring on the Panama Canal, and realizes that only her self-reliance and certainty of her own worth will see her through life’s challenges.
