Juditha Triumphans Devicta barbarism Holofernis
Military sacred oratorio.
Brief explanation and synopsis.

The argument of this sacred military oratorio is taken from the Book of Judith, one of the canonical texts that make up the Bible. In it is related, to allegorical and instructive way, the triumph of the Venetian Republic (custom in Judith and her maid Abra), along with the Catholic Church (represented by the city of Bethulia, and Ozias his high priest) on the Turkish Empire (represented by the Assyrian general Holofernes and his commander eunuch Bagoas).

Composed by Antonio Vivaldi in Venice in 1716, and divided into two parts, the oratorio Juditha Triumphans see the light during the war between the Republic of Venice and the Ottoman Empire. The librettist Giacomo Cassetti, uses war between Jews and Assyrians as an allegory of the Venetian-Turkish conflict in a year of decisive defeats Turkish.

In the first part the action occurs during the Assyrian siege of the city of Betulia unreal. The Judit Open widow and his faithful flock to the Assyrian camp. Received Bagoas, the eunuch commander, he informs the general Holofernes that a Jewish comes as a messenger of peace. Holofernes falls for her and the general orders Bagoas organize a banquet in his tent, to be attended by him and Judith.

Opens the second part the high priest Ozias and enter the banquet of Holofernes, who has just drunk and asleep on the table. Judit takes the sword and beheads the Assyrian, puts his head in a sack and delivery Open. Bagoas comes at dawn in the shop, discovers the crime and gives the alarm, but Judith and Abra are far with his trophy, symbol of the Assyrian defeat. Judit triumphs, triumphs Venice.
