Death: 1764

Yelizaveta Belogradskaya was a Russian Imperial Court opera singer and composer for keyboard.
She was born in St. Petersburg, the daughter of Osip Bilohradsky, a court singer and choral conductor. She was the niece of Timofiy Bilohradsky, the court lutenist. She was a kammermädchen at the court of the Empress Elizaveta Petrovna.
In 1753 she performed the part of Procris in Francesco Araja's opera "Cephalus and Procris", which was the first opera set in Russian, with the text by Aleksandr Sumarokov. She sang in G.P. Raupach's "The Refuge of Virtue" and "Alcesta". Belogradskaya appeared at court concerts and festivities as a singer and harpsichord player. Extant are her "Variations on a theme by Starzer" for keyboard. She died in the 1760s and was interred at the Alexander Nevsky Lavra.
