Mileva is an opera about Mileva Maric Einstein, the first wife of Albert Einstein. The work was commissioned for the 150th Anniversary of Srpsko Narodno Pozoriste (Serbian National Theater) in Novi Sad, Serbia, Maric's and Vrebalov's hometown. The opera is in two-acts (10 scenes), for full orchestra, chorus, 10 soloists, and tape - with documentary audio material such as Albert Einstein's voice and tamburica band.

The libretto is written by a Serbian playwright, Vida Ognjenovic, and is based on Ognjenovic's play Mileva Einstein. The libretto includes fragments from Shakespeare, and Urworte, a poem by Goethe. The poem is like a thread of memento mori throughout the opera, always sung by Mileva. The languages in the opera are Serbian, English (the excerpt from Shakespeare and the explanation of the E=mc2 formula in Einstein's original voice) and German (excerpts from Goethe's Urworte, and Einstein's letters).
