Rising Opera Star J’Nai Bridges Sings Beethoven At Tanglewood Sunday

Boston Symphony Orchestra
J'Nai Bridges

Opera singer J’Nai Bridges takes to the Tanglewood stage on Sunday in the midst of a whirlwind year. After starring as the titular role in the San Francisco Opera’s production of “Carmen” earlier this summer, she’s been nominated for the company’s 2019 Emerging Star of the Year. With her Metropolitan Opera debut set for November and international dates for “Carmen” coming in 2020, the 32-year-old Bridges spoke with WAMC about how she first entered the opera world.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
