You may be thinking of J'NAI BRIDGES, who *is* a mezzo.  JANAI BRUGGER, with a slightly different spelling, is a lyric soprano.

J'nai Brugger as Ilia? I thought she was a mezzo. 
 
 
I love this opera. The friezes and poses that Gluck both consolidated and modified from opera seria begin to melt into a unique, warm, and variegated humanity. 
 
 
Also, Mozart wrestles with the topos of sacrifice, as Gluck did so often in his operas, most purely in Iphigenie in Tauride.  
 
 
Mezzomaniac
