"A highlight was (Rosina's) duet with Amparo - the silky mezzo Elizabeth Bouk."
New York Times, dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's Rosina, 2015
“And soprano Elizabeth Bouk sang Amparo, the Count’s coquettish paramour and would-be seducer of Cherubino, with an unexpected depth of character.”
Opera News, dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's Rosina, 2015
As his long-suffering, embittered wife Augusta, Elizabeth Bouk revealed an impressive, firmly-grounded contralto, and made the most of Augusta’s conflicting dignity and torment.

“Elizabeth Bouk’s raving Dorabella was another winner, sung with a milky, luscious mezzo: her first aria ‘Smanie implacabili,’ involved one of the funniest uses of Valium that I’ve seen to date in opera.”
Opera News, Underworld Production's Cosi fan Tutte, 2009
"Ms. Bouk has a flinty demeanor and a big voice to match, wielded like a sharp knife. Her performance matured too as the character went from spurned ex to an almost Erda-like figure, hunched and walking with a cane, uttering warnings about the coming collapse of the silver market and at the same time, finding the humanity in this character. As she makes a last ditch effort to save her ex-husband from his own hubris, the performance climaxed with tremendous power." Paul Pelkonen, Utopia Opera's The Ballad of Baby Doe, 2017
“As Amparo, we really liked Elizabeth Bouk, whose Komponist in Utopia Opera's Ariadne auf Naxos we recently reviewed. Her mezzo-soprano is clean and pleasant to hear and she has a winning stage presence which made us care about this 18-year-old not-so-innocent. We liked her aria about her origins in Barcelona, daughter of a fish monger and a sailor, trying to advance herself in this world. “
Voce di Meche, dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's Rosina, 2015
“Elizabeth Bouk’s Amparo was a good time girl with a sense of humor about herself.”
Gay City News, dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's Rosina, 2015
“Elizabeth Bouk was earnest and sincere as The Composer.”
Tami Swartz, Utopia Opera's Ariadne auf Naxos, 2015
“Elizabeth Bouk sang the courtesan Amparo quite well, and gave even the predictable passages about the courtesan's life and her difficult upbringing charm and beauty.”
Taminophille, dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's Rosina, 2015
“As the eponymous Lucretia, mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Bouk made a noble but vulnerable heroine. We have been seeing a lot of this rising star lately--not only as a Utopia Opera regular, but also at Dell'Arte Opera Ensemble. Her voice and acting are equally impressive.”
Voce di Meche, Utopia Opera's The Rape of Lucretia, 2015
"Elizabeth Bouk's rich mezzo was a fine counterpart to Ms. Dinkelman's high-flying soprano. Her Augusta grew from the sharp bitterness of a rejected wife to the softer compassion she felt for Tabor when fate turned against him."
