|Hailed by The New York Times for her
"bright-hued soprano and apt comic timing," Jenny Lindsey is sought after
in houses throughout the country. With repertoire ranging from Mozart to
Verdi to Strauss operetta, her singing has been described by critics as "the
vocal highlight of the evening" (The Classical Review), "impressive" (Ticket
Sarasota), and "aptly radiant" (The South Florida Classical Review).
In a prolific career spanning from concert work to opera, she has sung under the batons of Victor DeRenzi (Sarasota Opera), Riccardo Muti (Chicago Symphony Chorus), Bernard Haitink (Chicago Symphony Chorus), Christopher Fecteau (dell'Arte Opera Ensemble), Keith Chambers (Opera New Jersey), Christine Flasch (Music By the Lake), and Alessandro Sicilliani (Columbus Symphony).
Though her main pursuits lie in opera solo performance, she shares Grammy honors from her early singing days with the Chicago Symphony and Chicago Symphony Chorus for their 2011 recording of Verdi's Requiem, conducted by Riccardo Muti.
In 2018, Jenny debuted Donna Anna in dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's production of Don Giovanni, completing her debut cycle of Mozart's 3 DaPonte heroines (she debuted La Contessa in Le nozze di Figaro in 2015 and Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte in 2016). On July 10 she performs Liu in Turandot on a recital at the Lincoln Center Library. On January 20, 2020 she performs as Musetta in Puccini’s La Boheme with the Imperial Symphony Orchestra in Lakeland Florida.
Other favorite roles include Rosalinda (Die Fledermaus), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Leïla (Les Pêcheurs de Perles), Élisabeth de Valois (Don Carlos), and Magda (La Rondine).
When she is not traveling the country singing opera, Jenny makes her home in Manhattan with her husband, Bass-Baritone Eric Lindsey. There they happily cook for and feed large groups of NYC-transplant opera singers and Bohemians of all types.
