Born in Yugoslavia, the mezzo-soprano Milijana Nikolic began her musical studies at a very early age, graduating in 2001 in the music department of Belgrade University under the guidance of Radmila Smilijnic. Triumphant in a number of national contests, in 1998 she won the Biserka Cvejic as the best vocal student of her year, with first prize at the Novi Sad Petar Konjovic Concorso Internazionale, where she was also awarded the Nikola Cvejic prize as the most promising young singer. In 2001 she won first prize in the Kraków Ada Sary International Competition. Her professional career began in 2000 with the Belgrade National Theatre, but wider horizons opened for her the following year with a scholarship from La Scala, Milan, which allowed her to complete her studies under Leyla Gençer, Luciana Serra, Giovanna Canetti, Luigi Alva and Teresa Berganza, and further develop her operatic ability under the batons of conductors including Gary Bertini and Riccardo Muti.
