Caitlin Lynch is one of the most promising young sopranos on the threshold of a prominent career. She was awarded first-place in the 2008 Houston Grand Opera Competition, and subsequently made her main-stage Houston debut as Hero in Beatrice et Benedict, Female Soloist in the American premiere of Chorus!, and covered Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Ms. Lynch completed the Seattle Opera Young Artist Program in the spring 2007, where she performed Micäela in Carmen and Alice Ford in Falstaff. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says, “She has genuine poise on stage, an understanding of her character and a handsome soprano to boot.” Other recent performances include Oasis in L’Etoile with the Cincinnati Opera, and several roles at the University of Cincinnati CCM: Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Ginevra in Ariodante and Philippa in Babette’s Feast. For the 2010-2011 season, she debuted the roles of Konstanza in Die Entführung aus dem Serail at the Arizona Opera, Leila in Les Pêcheurs des Perles at Opera Cleveland, Mrs. Gobineau in The Medium at the Spoleto Festival USA, as well as performed Fiordiligi in Così Fan Tutte at Opera Carolina and the Palm Beach Opera, Handel’s Messiah with the Ann Arbor Symphony, and a recital with tenor Paul Appleby at the Aspen Music Festival. Next, she performs Micäela in Carmen at the Seattle Opera, Eliza in the world premiere of Nico Muhly’s Dark Sisters at the Opera Company of Philadelphia and Gotham Chamber Opera in N.Y.C., First Lady in The Magic Flute at the Dallas Opera, Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro at Lyric Opera Baltimore, the Soprano Soloist in Carmina Burana with Syracuse Opera, and the role of Alice Ford in the Boston Youth Symphony’s performance of Falstaff.
