The Masque of Alfred Northern Opera Group August 2017

"Catrin Woodruff (Eltruda) is outstanding: given the arias that carry the main emotional heft, she sings them with dramatic intensity. "

Acis and Galatea 

Brighton Early Music Festival 

November 2015

"Catrin Woodruff was a near perfect Galatea, singing with a lovely sense of line and very fine diction, she made the words count. She combined a nice plangent tone with warm modulated tones and a great evenness of delivery. She competed successfully with Piers Adams's sopranino recorder in the delightful Hush, ye pretty warbling birds, and was fluently confident with lovely centred feel to her delivery when duetting with the fine oboe in As when the dove. The final solo and aria was full of expressive line and depth of colour in the voice."

Catrin Woodruff...gave a supremely assured performance in a challenging role

"Oustanding performance...from the disaffected strangeness of Catrin Woodruff's odd-bod Therese"

- Ken Walton, The Scotsman, January 2019

L'Italiana in Algeri 

Pop-up Opera 

June-November 2015

"I was impressed, too, by Welsh soprano Catrin Woodruff's omniscient Minerva (we all need a Minerva)."

- Michael Kennedy, Opera Magazine, February 2013

​"Catrin Woodruff's crystal clear soprano might well have been heard on the other end of the tunnel in Wapping, so much did it fill the space and the same could be said for Helen Stanley's mezzo soprano - the Elvira and Isabella roles given full value."

The Drunkard Cured 

RNCM Opera 

March 2014

- Anna Pickard, The Times, Tueday 18th March 2014
