Born in Catania, the soprano Doriana Milazzo started her
musical studies at a very young age. She studied violin at the Vincenzo Bellini
Conservatory in Catania and was the winner of several national competitions.
After a few years, during which she also played in the orchestra during the summer
opera season at the Teatro Mancinelli in Orvieto, she decided to devote herself
completely to the study of singing, graduating relatively recently from the G.
B. Martini Conservatory in Bologna. During the 2002/03 season she performed in
several concerts in Bologna and Florence. In July 2003 she won fourth prize
ex-aequo in the Umberto Sacchetti National Competition (third edition) and
second prize in the International Singing Competition in Orvieto. She made her
proper operatic debut during the 2003/04 season at the Teatro Comunale in Modena, where she sang in the world premiere of Marco Biscarini's La famosa invasione
degli orsi in Sicilia. Other engagements included a return to the Teatro
Comunale in Modena in Britten's Peter Grimes.
