Countess Elena Pucić-Sorkočević, also Elena Pozza-Sorgo (1786–1865) was the first female composer in the Republic of Ragusa (Dubrovnik), located in today's southern Croatia. She was born Elena Lujza Ranjina, and married Nikola Lucijan Pucić-Sorkočević (1772–1855). They had two children: Marina, who married Matej Natali and Lucijan Pucić-Sorkočević. After the fall of the Republic, musical performances were mostly held in private houses of the noble families.
