Judith

Judith

Dialogos [FR]

Judith is a divine Hebrew women, very beautiful but also dangerous. Judith has magical powers that she uses to infiltrate the Assyrian enemies’ palace where she seduces and taunt the mighty general Holofernes.

In an interpretation of this biblical story, we enter the thoughts of Judith as she is tormented by anxiety. We follow her inner dialogue between mind and soul as she decides to kill the enemy Holofernes in order to free her people.

Dialogos is one of the most prominent ensembles in medieval music. Judith is performed by singer Katarina Livljanic, accompanied by Albrecht Maurer and Norbert Rodenkirchen on violin, flute and the medieval instruments lirica and dvojnice.

The piece is performed in medieval Croatian with English subtitles.
