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/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 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.” Caitlin debuts with Opera Kelowna in their production of Cosi fan tutte, in 2023.

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. In 2023, Caitlin joins Windsor Symphony for Messiah highlights.

Caitlin is featured in several OperaBreaks, cinematic videos produced by Domoney Artists Management, and voiced Iona the cockatiel in Opera 5’s charming animated video, Threepenny Submarine, in collaboration with Kingston Symphony.
