Most widely held works by Marijana Mijanović
Rodelinda by George Frideric Handel( )

19 editions published in 2005 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth Handel opera to enter the Met repertoire, Rodelinda stars Renée Fleming in the title role of the Queen of Lombardy and grieving widow of King Bertarido (countertenor Andreas Scholl), who furiously rejects marriage to Grimoaldo (tenor Kobie van Rensburg), the usurper of her late husband's throne. Plot complications come thick and fast, among them the revelation that Bertarido is alive, with the characters' emotions exquisitely expressed in Handel's alternately lyrical and virtuosic arias. The stellar cast also includes Stephanie Blythe and John Relyea. Conductor Patrick Summers leads this thrilling performance
David by Francesco Conti( )

On doit au claveciniste, chef d'orchestre et musicologue américain Alan Curtis la redécouverte d'ouvrages rares de Haendel tels que Fernando ou Arminio mais aussi de Vivaldi avec Il Giustino. On lui doit aussi l'exhumation de cette composition de Conti, qui fut très actif à la cour de Vienne de 1701 jusqu'à sa mort

Orlando by George Frideric Handel( Visual )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At first sight the plot of Orlando is a simple one involving just five characters. The exotic Princess Angelica and her beloved Medoro are a happy couple pursued by two helplessly smitten rivals. Still inexperienced in affairs of the heart, Dorinda is also in love with Medoro. But as the opera runs its course, her developing maturity ultimately results in an exemplary display of self-conquest. Rather less straightforward is the affair involving the actual hero of the story, the knight Orlando. His integrity is at risk from the outset, torn as he is between the conflicting desires of love and the more enduring glory of military greatness. His inner balance is disturbed, little by little he loses his powers of reason. He eventually succumbs entirely to the grip of frenzy, before finally being healed by Zoroastro, who jealously protects his "fame"--In other words, his capability to return to fight other battles. Indeed Zoroastro is the only character capable of rising above such emotionality, appearing to exert a virtuoso control of the situation and ultimately safeguarding, at least in the opera's superficial structure, the ubiquitous happy ending, a sine qua non of opera seria."--Booklet
Betulia liberata : azione sacra in two parts, K. 118 (74c) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

14 editions published in 2006 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La resurrezione : HWV 47 by George Frideric Handel( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Italian and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Händel's La Resurrezione is an oratorio for Easter. It was first performed on Easter Sunday 1708 in Rome. The libretto was written by Carlo Sigismondo Capece. The events related in the story are those of the period between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, when Christ "descended into Hell" to redeem the souls of the patriarchs and prophets who had prepared for His coming. The events in the underworld are set out in series of lively exchanges between an Angel and Lucifer. Meanwhile, the story as seen on earth is related through the conversations of three mortal characters, Mary Magdalene, Mary Cleophas and St John the Evangelist. The two planes of the drama are united when the Angel appears to the women at the sepulchre and announces the Resurrection to them."--Program notes
