Sophie Michaux Mezzo-soprano
"Mezzo-soprano Sophie Michaux’s voice is a study in color. As her tone shifted from a mother’s quiet encouragement to a simmering internal rage, Michaux’s expressive quality and variety is remarkable..."
"... the warm, colorful mezzo Sophie Michaux..."
"Michaux’s voice is a luscious shade of burgundy, velvety and ever so slightly smoky..."
The Boston Musical Intelligencer
"The singing was especially luminous. Mezzo soprano Sophie Michaux’s velvety soprano captured the full emotional range of the opera’s title character. Her singing gave the character angelic presence in the first Act. ...With anguished tones, she captured Lucretia’s madness and shame in the gut-wrenching aftermath... She crawled about the stage whimpering and quivering, her singing never losing focus and power. " Boston Classical Review
