Biljana Staffansson and Ljiljana Jovanovic
Twin-sisters, Biljana Staffansson and Ljiljana Jovanovic are well-known
coloratura sopranos. The public remembers them as musical child prodigies, who gave
their first performance on television at the age of nine with a duet from The Magic
Flute by Mozart.
They completed their studies at the Faculty of
Musical Art in Belgrade and at the Luigi Cherubini Musical Academy in Firenze. Often
performing together on stages in Europe, they sing in many languages. Their
repertoire, both operas and concerts, includes Bellini, Chopin, Donizetti, Mozart and
Verdi, as well as many Nordic composers.
Their performances are noted for their brilliant interpretations and
musicality and a superb upper register, supporting themes on 'nature and love'.
Biljana Staffansson and Ljiljana Jovanovic have sung at stages from Belgrade
and Warsaw to Brussels, Firenze, Rome and Stockholm. They performed in 2002 in the
presence of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queen Silvia.
