Praise for Caitlin Lynch

Carmina Burana - Milwaukee Symphony

"Lynch...created an engaging character, singing with a gorgeous, ringing sound and communicative interpretation."

~Elaine Schmidt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Faust - Michigan Opera Theater

"As the tragic Marguerite, Caitlin Lynch delivered a shimmering, youthful soprano that was as natural in her giddy “Jewel Song” as in the final frantic act.”

~Jennifer Goltz Taylor, Opera News

Out of Darkness - Music of Remembrance

"Caitlin Lynch’s rich, shimmering soprano shines with a resplendent inner light, brilliantly projecting the combination of fortitude and empathy that made Zywulska’s survival possible. [Out of Darkness is] a powerful and painfully beautiful work, and between Miller’s virtuosic chamber ensemble and Lynch’s impassioned, multi-dimensional embodiment of Zywulska, it’s hard to imagine a better performance.”

~Joanne Sydney Lessner, Opera News

La traviata - Arizona Opera

"And so it is a true coup de théâtre for Arizona Opera to have cast the omnidextrous soprano Caitlin Lynch as Violetta in its latest production. In her opening-night appearance at Phoenix’s Symphony Hall, she shone in every facet of performance, from consummate interpretations of Verdi’s elegant arias to lucid acting in a dramatic arc that takes her character from carefree libertine to joyful penitent to forlorn wretch.

There isn’t a weak moment in Lynch’s tour de force, but her most captivating scene is the opening of Act 2, when Violetta, now happily cohabitating with the adoring Alfredo in her country house outside Paris, is visited by her lover’s father, Giorgio. Hoping for a warm welcome into the family, she is devastated when the stern patriarch presses her to sever her relationship for the sake of Alfredo’s sister, who cannot make a marriage match in proper society while a whiff of scandal lingers."

Messiah - Milwaukee Symphony

"Caitlin Lynch brought a ringing, silvery sound to the soprano solos, singing with technical ease and a flowing sense of musical line.”

~Elaine Schmidt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Dark Sisters - Gotham Chamber Opera

"Among a uniformly excellent cast, Caitlin Lynch unfurled a shimmering soprano as rebellious wife Eliza.”

~James Jorden, New York Post

“Still, Mr. Muhly and Mr. Karam have done something right, because the wives emerge as poignant characters, especially Eliza, here the lustrous soprano Caitlin Lynch, who alone finds the courage to challenge her husband and unleashes a pent-up condemnation of the Mormon elders during the interview, calling upon her sisters to break free.”

~Anthony Tommasini, New York Times

“Caitlin Lynch gave an intense performance, with the lucid, natural quality of her soprano well-suited to her character.”

~Ronni Reich, The New Jersey Star-Ledger

Così fan tutte - Opera Carolina

"Caitlin Lynch, playing Fiordiligi – the girlfriend who resists temptation longest – sang with a lyricism and commitment that were especially telling.”

~Steven Brown, Charlotte Observer

Don Giovanni - Michigan Opera Theater

"Chief vocal honors go to soprano Caitlin Lynch, a Michigan native, who sang Donna Anna’s music with seamless, effortless, unforced sound. Her “Non mi dir” was especially beautiful, a model of controlled yet plangent singing.”

~John Gunn, Opera News
