Fort Worth Opera Announces World Premiere Opera

Written by FWD501cReporter

The Fort Worth Chamber shared that the Fort Worth Opera (FWOpera) has announced the casts and creative teams for the 2019 Festival season, including the world premiere of composer-librettist Rachel J. Peters’s opera, Companionship. Adapted from the short story by internationally bestselling author Arthur Phillips, this 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 FWOperaFrontiers showcase, the work will receive a fully staged production next month at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, as part of FWOpera’s alternative venue series, Opera Unbound, and is the first opera written by a woman to be produced by the company in its 73-year history.
