The small roles are listed in Opera News but I wish the Met would asterisk 
the Lindemann Artists to highlight how they are participating. San 
Francisco does a good job of pointing out Adler Fellows in the cast.

I loved the Clotilde, Michelle Bradley (known until recently as Tammie 
Bradley). I Googled her and found out she's from a small town in Kentucky 
called Versailles (rhymes with "nails") and was told she had an exceptional 
voice and should go to college and study music. She arrived as a 17-year-
old who couldn't read music but she was determined to work hard.

She’s now a second-year Lindemann Artist and won first prize in the 2016 
Serge and Olga Koussevitsky Young Artist Award Competition. 

Here’s her first-prize recital (includes Strauss, Verdi, Mozart, Poulenc, 
Duparc, spirituals):

There’s an interview near the end (47:30), where she talks about her 

And here’s a demo video she made in 2013, where she starts out with 
Casta Diva.
