More than a decade after Lincoln Center Theater joined forces with the Metropolitan Opera to commission and develop new operas, it will finally stage one of the new works next year: a new chamber opera based on Lynn Nottage’s popular play “Intimate Apparel,” with a libretto by the playwright and music by Ricky Ian Gordon.
The joint commissioning program, announced with fanfare in 2006, got off to a slow start. Perhaps unexpectedly, it was the enormous Met, which holds 4,000 people, that first presented a work developed through the program: Nico Muhly’s true-crime-inspired “Two Boys,” which the opera house staged in 2013.
But Lincoln Center Theater announced Wednesday that it would start performances of “Intimate Apparel,” in a production directed by Bartlett Sher, on Feb. 27 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, which seats 299 people.
“It isn’t called ‘Intimate Apparel’ for no reason, and I’m pushing the word ‘intimate,’” said André Bishop, the theater’s artistic director. “It is an intimate opera.”
The opera is based on Ms. Nottage’s 2004 play, which is set in 1905 New York and tells the story of a lonely African-American seamstress who sews ladies’ undergarments and courts a laborer working on the Panama Canal through the mail. Since its premiere, the play has appeared several times on lists of the most-produced plays in the nation, and Ms. Nottage has won two Pulitzer Prizes for subsequent works.
Mr. Gordon, whose previous operas include “The House Without a Christmas Tree” and “The Grapes of Wrath,” has written a score for the opera with period touches, influenced by ragtime, cakewalk and the blues. Mr. Bishop said that the opera would feature a cast of 20, who would be accompanied by two pianists. Mr. Sher, the resident director of Lincoln Center Theater, also works regularly at the Met Opera and on Broadway. (He is nominated for a Tony Award this season for directing the play “To Kill a Mockingbird.”)
Other operas developed through the commissioning program are now in the pipeline for future Met productions, including “Eurydice,” by the composer Matthew Aucoin and the librettist Sarah Ruhl, which will have its premiere next year at the Los Angeles Opera before coming to the Met in a few years. The Met also plans to stage Jeanine Tesori’s opera “Grounded,” based on the George Brant play about a pregnant pilot who conducts drone warfare.
But Lincoln Center Theater’s first foray into staging one of the new works is significant, as composers are increasingly moving away from large-scale grand opera and toward more intimate works that are less expensive to stage and easier for small companies to mount.
And in some ways, it is a return to a decades-old dream of opera at the Newhouse.
In 1973, when the theater was still known as the Forum, the Met Opera tried to make it into a “Mini-Met” where it could stage contemporary works, rare chamber operas and Baroque works. In its first — and only — season there, the company presented Virgil Thomson’s “Four Saints in Three Acts” in a production directed and choreographed by Alvin Ailey, and a double-bill of Maurice Ohana’s “Syllabaire pour Phèdre” and Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas.”
The program had been the idea of Goeran Gentele, who had just succeeded Rudolf Bing as the general manager of the Met when he was killed in a car crash in 1972, and efforts to continue the “Mini-Met” fizzled.
Mr. Bishop, of Lincoln Center Theater, said that he was pleased to be bringing opera back to the space — but with a new work that emerged out of a beloved theater work.
“There will be big voices in a small theater,” he said.B:
