"The story of the sorceress, Armide, is an adaptation of the epic poem by Tasso : this woman traps her male victims by using the wiles of her sex, causing them to fall in love with her without returning their love. However, when the sorceress herself fall in love, everything changes. She is overwhelmed with love which consumes her and proves her undoing. The hero, Renaud, is subjugated by her erotic, corrupting, emasculating charm. Lully is also captivated by the charm of his enamoured sorceress. It is the character least expected to inspire our empathy that ultimately wins it by the beauty, emotion and expressive power of his music." -- Container
