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 world premiere of Marie Clements/Brian Current’s powerful opera MISSING, showing “exquisite vulnerability”.
The pandemic interrupted a busy 2019/20 season for Caitlin, which began with performances in IL TRITTICO with Pacific Opera Victoria, and a touring production of MISSING in BC. Caitlin was “an exceptional soprano with excellent comedy” as Susanna in Edmonton Opera ‘s MARRIAGE OF FIGARO in January 2020, but in March, the Covid-19 curtain came down after dress rehearsal for Caitlin starring as Cunegonde in CANDIDE with Edmonton Opera.
Mark Morris called Caitlin’s recent Comtesse Adele “the standout performance of the evening” in Edmonton Opera’s LE COMTE ORY, and as Adele in Toronto Operetta Theatre’s DIE FLEDERMAUS, Paula Citron praised her “charming stage presence”.
Recent concert performances for Caitlin include Vancouver Bach Choir/Vancouver Opera Festival’s premiere of Brian Current’s THE RIVER OF LIGHT, 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 in collaboration with Kingston Symphony, THREEPENNY SUBMARINE.
Caitlin received her Masters of Music in Opera Performance from University of Toronto, and gained attention as Johanna in SWEENEY TODD while a member of Vancouver Opera’s Yulanda M. Faris Young Artist Program.
