Alberta-born soprano Caitlin Wood was “absolutely vibrant” and showed “great comic flair” in her debut as Susanna in Vancouver Opera Festival’s The Marriage of Figaro. Caitlin portrayed Ava in City Opera Vancouver’s 2017 world premiere of Marie Clements and Brian Current’s powerful opera Missing, showing “exquisite vulnerability.”
Mark Morris called Caitlin’s recent Comtesse Adele “the standout performance of the evening” in Le Comte Ory at Edmonton Opera. As Susanna in their 2020 production of The Marriage of Figaro, Caitlin was hailed as “an exceptional soprano with excellent comedy” in January 2020, but the Covid-19 curtain came down before she stepped on stage as Cunegonde in Candide.
Caitlin’s 2021/22 season kicks off as The Housewife in the world premiere of Gould’s Wall with Tapestry Opera, Despina in Edmonton Opera’s Così fan tutte, and Josephine in HMS Pinafore with Vancouver Opera.
Recent concert performances for Caitlin include the premiere of Brian Current’s The River of Light with the Vancouver Bach Choir/Vancouver Opera Festival, Carmina Burana with Ottawa Choral Society, and Mozart’s Requiem with Windsor Symphony Orchestra.
Caitlin is featured in several OperaBreaks – cinematic videos produced by Domoney Artists Management – and voices Iona the cockatiel in Opera 5’s charming animated video Threepenny Submarine in collaboration with Kingston Symphony.
