Introducing Caroline Hewitt, Mezzo-Soprano

We are so pleased to introduce you to Caroline Hewitt. We are so lucky to have her for “Opera on the River”!

Praised for her “grease lightening coloratura” and “impressive dramatic versatility,” Caroline made her professional opera debut as Giovanna in Rigoletto with Sacramento Opera. Other operatic roles include Angelina in La Cenerentola, Isoletta in La Straniera, Lucia in La gazza ladra, Dorabella in Cosi fan tutte, Cherbuino in Le nozze di Figaro, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Luisa Fernanda, Meg Page in Die Lustige Weber von Windsor and Thelma in John Musto’s Later the Same Evening.

Caroline was named the first prize winner at the 2018 Lotte Lenya Competition. As a proponent of musical theater, Caroline was a featured soloist in Brevard Music Center’s Sondheim on Sondheim. Upcoming projects include a film adaptation of Kurt Weill’s Sieben Todsünden in collaboration with director Crystal Manich.

In December, Caroline and Michael Hewitt started the podcast Music & Weights. Together, they interview singers, actors, teachers, coaches, conductors and other game changers from the opera and musical theater worlds about their individual journeys in health, wellness, and music. Guests have included Lucas Meachem (Metropolitan Opera), Solomon Howard (Metropolitan Opera), Leah Crocetto (Metropolitan Opera) and Blaine Krauss (Broadway).

A California native, Caroline Hewitt grew up training at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. She’s a graduate of Vanderbilt University where she studied Voice and English Literature, a recipient of the Hirsch Endowment Scholarship at University of Houston’s Moores Opera Center, and recent Tony Cuevas Award Winner at West Bay Opera’s 2018 Holt Competition.
