Tenor Nenad Čiča was born in Split (Croatia) and studied singing at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade, Serbia. Numerous master classes (with Doreen DeFeis and James Hopper, Snezana Brzaković, Mignon Dunn, Ruggiero Raimondi, Ruth Falcon, among others) and a scholarship at IVAI (International Vocal Arts Institute) in New York City completed his studies. He is a laureate of the most important singing competitions in his home country and has received international scholarships in recognition of his artistic achievements (including the International Opera Awards Foundation in London).

As a member of the ensemble at the National Theatre Belgrade (2012-2017), he sang many important roles of the lyric tenor part such as Alfredo (»La Traviata«), Ismaele (»Nabucco«), Luigi (»Il Tabarro«), Lensky (»Eugene Onegin«), Duke of Mantua (»Rigoletto«), Rinuccio (»Gianni Schicchi«) or Narraboth (»Salome«).

In 2014 he made his debut at the Operosa Festival in Montenegro singing Roméo from Gounod's »Roméo et Juliette«. In 2016 he sang Hans in the opera »Die weiße Rose« by Udo Zimmermann for the first time as part of an independent production. In 2017 followed his Italian debut as Fenton (»Falstaff«) at the Teatro Carlo Felice di Genova. In the same year he gave the role of Enrico di Guisa in a production of »Caterina di Guisa« with I Virtuosi Ambulanti (Munich).

From 2015 to 2017 he collaborated with the Choir and Symphony Orchestra of the Serbian Radio, where he performed tenor parts from Mozart's Requiem and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. During this period, he was equally active at Theatre&Opera Madlenianum in Belgrade, where he participated in two projects: in the role of the Italian in Jacques Ibert's Angelique, and as Lujo in the opera »Suton« by Serbian composer Stevan Hristić, which was performed as part of the BEMUS Festival in 2016. In summer 2018, he made his Mozart debut as Titus Vespasianus in Mozart's »La Clemenza di Tito« in Bad Aibling and Kammeroper Konstanz.
