Caitlin returns to Opera Memphis as Carmen in Peter Brooks' acclaimed adaptation, Tragedie de Carmen.

What a wonderful experience returning to Opera Memphis for their Midtown Opera Festival!  Performing in Peter Brook's haunting Tragedie de Carmen with a talented cast of new and old friends, under the direction of Joshua Borths and the baton of Maestro Ben Makino, was a thrilling experience.  And, thanks to the all-encompassing creative mind of General Director Ned Canty, I even got to whip out my guitar for a little Tennessee Waltz at the "Aria Jukebox" after opening night!  I left Memphis with my heart ... and belly (Memphis BBQ is second to none!) full.  Click here for John W. Sparks' review for The Commercial Appeal.
