La Giuditta

Scarlatti's dramatic oratorium


Judith kept her city Betulia out of the hands of General Holofernes by beheading him by means of a ruse. Alessandro Scarlatti set this story to music twice. The second version from 1697 has a drastically reduced line-up. Scarlatti’s craftsmanship dazzles in its recitatives, virtuoso arias and duets in all styles and moods. With three leading soloists conducted by rising star Andrea Buccarella, La Giuditta cannot fail to produce sparks.
