Janai Brugger is at the Metropolitan Opera this month, singing Helena, one of the quartet of shipwrecked lovers in The Enchanted Island, the company's Baroque pastiche. Brugger is thrilled to be returning to the Met, where she made her company debut as Liù in Turandot in 2012. "The Enchanted Island is a lot of fun to play. Helena is a change for me, because I always play dramatic, serious characters — I'm excited to have a more bouncy, comedic person to play. And the production is unbelievable! I'm really excited to be part of it."
