Sena (Srebrenka) Jurinac (born 1921) is an operatic soprano, now retired, born in Travnik, Bosnia.
Sena Jurinac made her début as Mimì at Zagreb in 1942. In the following two years she sang the Countess, Freia and Isabella in the première of Werner Egk's Columbus.
In 1944 she was engaged by the Vienna State Opera. Because of the War she was not able to sing there until 1946, when her first role was Cherubino. In the first year at the Staatsoper she sang more than 150 performances. She remained associated with the company for nearly forty years, receiving an honorary membership of the Company, giving her the title of Kammersängerin, and the Mozart Medal.
