Yours Forever, Lincoln

The intimate male relationships of Abraham Lincoln have been under the scholar’s microscope for decades with many proposing the idea that these relationships went beyond basic friendships. World premiering in October 2022, Quarry Theatre’s original chamber opera, Yours Forever, Lincoln, aims to spark discussions around the history of sexuality, American revisionist history and the importance of LGBTQIA+ visibility. A compilation of original text, historical first-person accounts, letters and poetry by Lincoln, and poetry by Walt Whitman and Lord Byron, Yours Forever, Lincoln, explores the beauty of ambiguity, sexuality as a spectrum and the men who helped shape one of the most iconic leaders in American history. “Lincoln has a mythological status in American culture and the realization that even an icon’s history can be erased inspired me to tell this story,” says Patrick Alexander, composer and co-librettist for the new opera, Yours Forever, Lincoln. “I hope other LGBTQIA+ people, upon experiencing this opera, will also feel seen.” Yours Forever, Lincoln will premiere at The Voxel in Baltimore, October 2022. The Voxel, an ADA accessible theatre space, is located on 9 W 25th Street, Baltimore, MD, 21218.
