The broadcast is offered as part of the Southern California classical station’s LA Opera On Air, a weekly series of performances recorded live at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

“Shagimuratova provided a show by herself,” wrote the OC Register of Albina’s performance. “As Lucia, she negotiated Donizetti’s hire-wire somersaults with ease and knocked everyone’s socks off. It’s a gorgeous voice, opulent and bejeweled, with a surprising volume and penetration for all its basic delicacy.”
