Fort Worth Opera Festival: Companionship
Fort Worth Opera will present the world premiere of composer-librettist Rachel J. Peters’s delightfully wicked opera, Companionship. Adapted from the short story by internationally bestselling author Arthur Phillips, this deliciously dark comedy about an obsession with dough mirrors our modern world, where what we consume becomes all-consuming.
Selected as a winner of the 2018 FWOpera Frontiers showcase, the work will receive a fully staged production in the Lecture Hall Auditorium at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, as part of FWOpera’s alternative venue series, Opera Unbound. It is the first opera written by a woman to be produced by the company in its 73-year history.
