Kisses of Broadway
As Patience in Patience with the G&S Society of Winnipeg –
“Alberta-born soprano Wood makes this production sing. Her coquettish portrayal of the title role brims with fresh youthfulness and a coloratura voice that sparkles like a jewel. Wood is a fine actress as well, possessing both a knack for characterization as well as a natural gift for spontaneity with her fellow actors. Her classic Act 2 aria ‘Love is a Plaintive Song’ was a standout.”
Holly Harris, Winnipeg Free Press
