“Liza Lozica succeeds to bring across a passionate and raw reality” – NRC

About me

Liza Vjera Lozica (1994), who has recently made her debut at the Salzburger Festspiele in the summer of ‘23, was born in Rotterdam to a Dutch-Croatian family. From the age of four she was frequently on stage in Rotterdam where she gained a thorough theatrical upbringing, developing a wide interest in the arts and experience in the three main disciplines of singing, acting and dancing.

Liza began her vocal training at the Maastricht Conservatory, where she completed her bachelor’s degree with distinction. She proceeded with her master degree with Sasja Hunnego at the Amsterdam Conservatory graduating in 2019, followed by vocal studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Here she worked with Ruby Philogene and John Evans. In the season of 20/21 she took part in the Serena Fenwick Programme of British Youth Opera.

Praised for her musicality, dramatic intuition and strong characters, highlights of Liza’s career include: Annina in an abridged version of La Traviata at the Nederlandse Reisopera, the opera project Be Opera XL for the Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam and Elle in a new version of Poulenc’s La Voix Humaine at the Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam. Despite still being early in her career, Liza has worked together with the majority of Dutch opera companies, as well as projects with Toneelgroep Maastricht, the Dutch Radio Choir and the London Symphony Orchestra.

During her career she has had the opportunity to work together with renowned singers and musicians, such as:  Malcolm Martineau, Christiane Karg, Eva- Maria Westbroek, Sir Willard White, Edith Wiens, Kamal Khan, Nelly Miricioiu, Ann Murray, Michelle de Young, Margreet Honig and Paul Curran.

With a curiosity in all genres of music and art, and a particular love of folk music, Liza is always in search of collaborations with musicians and artists from different genres, and cultures to create new ways of communicating through music.
