Albina Shagimuratova about music and life. Quotes from the interview

Now the word "prima donna" has disappeared from everyday life. We cannot afford any whims. Of course, there are singers who make a reputation on their character, but many directors and directors refuse to work with such. From an interview with the newspaper "Culture"


The worst thing for an artist is to stand still. I have my own program for the future: to perform Bellini's Norma, as well as Rossini's Semiramide and Donizetti's Anna Boleyn. From an interview with the newspaper "Culture"


One of my favorite heroines is Violetta from La Traviata. It must be sung in such a way that the audience will cry. Such a party requires life experience, lived through dramas.  From an interview with the newspaper "Culture"

In general, only Mozart keeps you in  good shape  - neither  Donizetti, nor  Rossini, nor  Russian opera. Mozart for me  - like medicine. From an interview with Musical Life magazine


Devoting yourself to music is a sacrifice.  A beautiful life is 30%, and 70% is a lot of work. To endure, you need professionalism, character, core. From an interview with the Izvestia newspaper
