Oratorio Reading: Domenico Freschis Giuditta
The Academy of Sacred Drama is pleased to present the Modern-Day World Premiere of Domenico Freschi's Giuditta. The Academy 2017-2018 season features three Italian oratorios based upon the deuterocanonical Book of Judith. Determined to reverse the cruel fate of her city, Judith captivates the commander of the enemy forces with her beauty and decapitates him in the night. Oratorio Readings include a musical performance by critically acclaimed early-music performers led by violinist and director Jeremy Rhizor, a lecture, and a dessert break.
