Biography
Born in Travnik (Bosnia) of an Austrian mother and Croatian father, soprano Sena Jurinac studied voice with Marja Kostrencic at the Conservatory in Zagreb. She made her debut as Mimi (La Bohème) in the theatre of that city in 1942. Karl Böhm called her to the Vienna Opera in 1944 and she remained active there until 1982. Sena Jurinac has performed in the world's greatest opera houses (Covent Garden, La Scala, Chicago, Buenos Aires, Melbourne) and has sung at prestigious festivals such as Salzburg and Glyndebourne. She has made a great name in the soprano roles in the works of Mozart and Strauss. Her interpretations in Der Rosenkavalier and Ariadne auf Naxos have left their mark on operatic history. After 1982, she continued to teach, give master classes and participate as a jury member at international competitions.
