At the heart of San Francisco’s vibrant cultural life, the San Francisco Girls Chorus (SFGC) presents a special version of Vivaldi’s Juditha Triumphans on March 9th and 10th. This performance highlights the talent of two remarkable French women.

“Juditha Triumphans” is an oratorio composed by Antonio Vivaldi in 1716. It tells the biblical story of Judith and Holofernes. It is one of Vivaldi’s most important religious compositions.

Under the direction of Valérie Sainte-Agathe, artistic director of the SFGC, and staged by Céline Ricci, this performance at the Z Space promises a captivating fusion of history and modernity. Their collaboration breathes new life into this ancient music by Vivaldi, making it accessible while preserving its complex beauty.

With their leadership, the SFGC’s Premier Ensemble is committed to reviving this timeless work, originally performed by young women in Venice.

Céline Ricci, a specialist in baroque opera, and Valérie Sainte-Agathe, dedicated to nurturing young talents, blend tradition and innovation. Their collaboration celebrates Vivaldi’s legacy while inspiring a new generation of artists and audiences.

On the occasion of the SFGC’s 45th anniversary, this production underscores music’s ability to transcend time and borders, propelled by the artistic vision of two visionary French women.
