"The star of the evening was Caitlin Wood as Susanna, showing great comic flair and a flexible and attractive soubrette soprano, with a lower register that thrilled. The latter was most apparent in her moving rendition of ‘Deh vieni, non tardar’ in Act 4."
– Harvey Deroo, Vancouver Classical Music
Alberta-born soprano Caitlin Wood earned impressive reviews as “absolutely vibrant”, with “great comic flair” (Vancouver Classical Music) in her acclaimed debut as Susanna in Vancouver Opera Festival’s 2017 production of Marriage of Figaro. As the feisty Despina in Against the Grain’s A Little too Cozy in Toronto, Caitlin displayed “a remarkable voice endowed with impressive agility and range… a scene-stealer” (OperaGoTo.com). As Giulietta in I Capuletti e Montecchi with Opera in Concert, Caitlin displayed “her beautiful legato in a soaring voice… with ornamentation that appears effortless” (Paula Citron).
