Rossini's style of writing requires the singer to be in great physical shape to withstand the vocal
gymnastics: trills, roulades and runs. Consequently, this particular opera isn't attempted as often as other more popular operas.
Renee Fleming's voice was powerful as Armida and she seemed to do it with great ease. As a sorceress, she was beguiling! Her Rinaldo, Lawrence Brownlee, was equally as powerful.
Costuming was imaginative for the "underworld" performers - ghoulish and entertaining! Although the set was minimal, it was effective and didn't distract from the overall production.
