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”.
As Susanna in Edmonton Opera’s production of Marriage of Figaro, Caitlin was hailed as “an exceptional soprano with excellent comedy”.
In 2022, Caitlin portrayed the Housewife in the multi Dora Award nominated world premiere of Gould’s Wall (Current/Balkan) with Tapestry Opera and was a sparkling Despina in Edmonton Opera’s Cosi fan Tutte. As Josephine in HMS Pinafore with Vancouver Opera, Janet Smith observed: “Capturing the full range of emotions of her character, Caitlin Wood has a vibrant soprano voice that easily scales the heights of Josephine’s arias.”
Recent concert performances for Caitlin include Vancouver Bach Choir/Vancouver Opera’s premiere of Brian Current’s The River of Light, Carmina Burana with Ottawa Choral Society, and Mozart’s Requiem with Windsor Symphony Orchestra. A favourite at Westben Festival, Caitlin returns this summer as Fantine in “Les Mis in Concert”. Caitlin is featured in several Opera Breaks, cinematic videos produced by Domoney Artists Management, and voices Iona the Cockatiel in Opera 5’s animated video, Threepenny Submarine, in collaboration with Kingston Symphony.
