Angelika Aleksandrovna Yutt (Russian: Анжелика Александровна Ютт; born 5 November 1969 in Simferopol, Crimea, USSR), better known by stage name ANGELIKA (Russian: АНЖЕЛИКА), is a Russian opera, pop, house and trance singer (coloratura soprano); vocal trainer, producer and music composer.

Biography[edit]

During Angelika’s studying at Simferopol Musical School, she was recognized as natural coloratura soprano. Then in Simferopol Musical College, her talents were developed and promoted. So when Angelika was a student she started career of a soloist in Crimea Ukrainian Musical Theatre and at the same time began as a pop singer.

Those times she, a student of music school and conservatory, often got into dispute with teachers and teaching aids, arguing that opera (means academic) singing could not be compatible with pop music. Later, these discussions led Angelika to original compositions that combine these two music vectors and ushered in a dream-mystery – new musical direction that she created.

1987: participating in "Crimean Dawns" International Festival

1992: moving to Minsk, where she became a soloist of "The Charmers" band. 1993: becoming a soloist of the Belarus State Concert Orchestra conducted by Mikhail Finberg.[1] 1993: 1st prizes of "Maladzechna-93" and "Vilnius 93" International Vocal Contests Also Angelika some times took part in "Slavic Bazaar" and "Bialystok Hollyhocks" International Festivals. 1996: releasing the first solo album "Love Shore" and the first video of the same name. 1997-1999: working as the soloist of "Siabry" band.[2] 1998: publishing the second solo album "Planet of Love", as well as "Mama Maroussia" album and "The Charmed Paradise" book of videos.[3] 1998: 1st prize in "The Belarusian Chart-98" Music Video Festival with her "Mama-Maroussia" nominated as "The Best Song Of The Year" [4] 1999: starting of an own solo project ANGELIKA. 2002-2006: co-working with Igor Siliviorstov, a well-known Moscow producer ("Virus", "Strelki"). In this cooperation and under Igor’s leadership "Above The Clouds" album,[5] "I'm Flying" and "Goodbye" videos have appeared. 2006: as the contract with Siliviorstov ended Angelika produced herself one more solo album named "Goodbye" (Sound Mystery). Since then the project progressively was moving to GlobalsounD Produсtion, and in 2009 passed under its wing completely. 2009: Millennium Opera label (Austria) published ANGELIKA’s experimental album «The Mystery Of Time», which actually started the dream-mystery, a new musical trend as a mix of new age and new opera. This album was the first to use a combination of coloratura soprano with a club dance music in house and trance, and just in this compilation one could listen to Angelica Yutt singing Mozart's "Symphony No. 40" and Tchaikovsky’s "Little Swans’ Dance".

The same year Russian sportsman, tenfold world champion in free callisthenics in rhythmic gymnastics Olga Kapranova won all major competitions of the year such as World and European Championships, World Cup stages, etc. with ANGELIKA’s «Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in dream-mystery» (exercises with ribbon).[6]

Her compositions repeatedly raised the first in JUNO, British sales charts, and were the part of TOP-100 best songs in Beatport, American music store.[7] 2011: “ANGELIKA’s The Best” (BVI Production/Sound Mystery) was released, included 7 artist’s albums (90 tracks).
