At the age of 8 Julianna was accepted to a well-known musical school for gifted children, School of Stolyarsky, piano class. She showed outstanding results as a pianist during her studies at school, performing as a solo musician, coached by Anatoli Povzoun and Yury Dikiy.

She was taught by legendary bass-baritone Mati Palm, who helped her master her first serious role, Abigaille, in Verdi’s Nabucco. Her debut as Abigaille took place in 2004 in Estonian National Opera.

Simultaneously with Latvian National opera productions, the singer went on tour to other countries. Guest performances included music festival in Macao, where she performed Aida by Verdi and Woglinde in Das Rheingold by Wagner. She also made her debut in Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre in 2016 where she performed Leonora’s part in Fidelio by Beethoven.
