Antonio Vivaldi’s oratorio The Triumph of Judith – an allegorical tale of the Venetian victory over the Turks besieging the Corfu Island in 1716. It is a story about victory over the conquerors from the East, based on the Biblical story of the Jewish widow Judith, who saved the Jewish people from the invading Assyrian army. Young widow Judith along with her maid comes to the enemies’ camp to the Army Commander Holofern himself, pretending that she wants to seduce him. While Holoferno sleeps, Judith beheads him, puts the head in the bag and quietly leaves the camp with her maid. The Army Commander is dead, so the army withdraws. The Jewish people are saved. The creators of the play believe, that in today’s brutal war, Judith must triumph, and with her, Ukraine. Theater Utopia, together with National Kaunas Drama Theater, with the help of impressive creative forces – the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, opera soloists, the choir Liepaitės, flat puppets by Julija Skuratova, and the extraordinary Baroque work of Antonio Vivaldi is presenting The Triumph of Judith as an artistic act of resistance, and they are hopeful that the magic of the action on the stage will help in this war too. The opera is characterized by its unusual cast of performers including five soloists and a chorus of girls, which provides the musical part with special power and vital energy. The main role of Judith will be performed by Hungarian soloist Dalma Krajnyák (Hungary) and Lithuanian soloists Renata Dubinskaitė, Lina Dambrauskaitė, Jomantė Paukštė, Indrė Anankaitė.
