The Birmingham News previewed Opera Birmingham's 2010-11 season:
- Two renowned sopranos with Alabama connections will headline Opera Birmingham's 2010-11 season. Elizabeth Futral, whose star power has spread to television, recordings and opera stages worldwide, will return to Samford University, where she graduated in 1985. She will perform in a solo recital in November in the intimate Brock Recital Hall. In March, Susanna Phillips stars in Gaetano Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor." It will be her first time acting in the title role, although she sang it in a concert performance in her home town of Huntsville. – Michael Huebner, The Birmingham News
