Praise for J’Nai’s Metropolitan Opera debut as Nefertiti in Philip Glass’s ‘Akhnaten’
J’Nai made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Nefertiti in Philip Glass’s ‘Akhnaten’, November 8 – December 7, 2019, with a flood of media coverage and rave reviews accompanying it.
“The vocal blend of Costanzo’s Akhnaten with mezzo J’Nai Bridges as his wife, Nefertiti, and soprano Disella Lárusdóttir as his mother, Queen Tye, was sublime. Just enough alike and just enough different, they sang as individuals and spoke as one voice depending on the moment in the score.” – NY Classical Review
“J’nai Bridges as Nefertiti sounded warm and lush; Dísella Lárusdóttir’s high, bright soprano as Queen Tye, Akhnaten’s mother, blended hauntingly with the royal couple in their otherworldly trio.” – Bachtrack
