Companionship, by composer/librettist Rachel J. Peters, sings the story of an aspiring baker who finally reaches the end of her obsessive quest to bake the perfect baguette when the 207,345th one suddenly comes to life. Adapted from the short story by Arthur Phillips, this darkly witty work mirrors our contemporary world, where what we consume becomes all-consuming.
