With the role of Adrasto "Telemaco" for Schwetzingen Festpiele in 2004 Mariselle began to specialise in baroque and coloratura repertoire which brought her huge critical acclaim as Isabella "L’Italiana in Algeri" for Theater Basel as well as Fulvia "Ezio" (C. W. Gluck) the latter now released on the WD3/Coviello label. For her appearance for the Theater Bonn in the title role of "Orlando Furioso", Vivaldi the “General Anzeiger” wrote; “Schlictweg phänominal ist die Virtuosität…. die gerade für Ihre Stimmlage besonders schwierigen Kolotaturen zum Klingen bringt” and the “Kölnishe Rundshau” described her, as “grandiose”. Following this she sang the title role in Handel’s "Floridante" for the Handel Festpiele Halle. This season her engagements include Valantiniano in Handel’s "Ezio" for Theater Bonn and in the title role of "Orlando" for the Komische Oper, Berlin and Malcolm in Rossini’s "La Donna del Lago" for Geneva.

Next season she returns to Bonn to sing the title role in "Tamerlano".
