Biserka Cvejić Suggest updates

Yugoslav (Serbian) mezzo-soprano.

Biserka Cvejić was a principal mezzo with the Belgrade opera through the fifties and sixties. She sang leading roles with the company during its 1962 Edinburgh Festival visit.

Prior to that, she also preserved some of her solo parts in 1955 when Decca made recordings of seven of the then-rare Russian operas. These include Borodin (Nurse/Polovtsian Maiden), Mussorgsky (Hostess) and Tchaikovsky (Olga).
