“The outstanding performance of the afternoon was that of mezzo-soprano Stephanie Houtzeel in the role of Armide… At its best, her Armide seemed life itself, with its messy joys, sorrows, hungers and contradictions, and the role was sung with all the ardor, intelligence and vocal luster at Houtzeel’s command, which was plenty. This was the sort of daring, impassioned performance that can make a career…”
