Founded in 1997 by Croatian singer and musicologist Katarina Livljanic, Ensemble Dialogos brings medieval music to life by presenting it in new and imaginative ways. The ensemble's projects link new musicological research with a theatrical approach to performance, covering everything from plainchant and early polyphony to medieval musical theatre. Their production Judith follows the biblical story of a Bethulian widow who kills the enemy Holofernes to liberate her people. The story is a cornerstone of medieval Croatian literature, set in verse by 16th-century Dalmatian poet Marko Marulic;. The music has been reconstructed with reference to Gregorian, Beneventan and Glagolitic sources. The production features Livljanic in the title role, accompanied by two instrumentalists, with staging, scenography and costumes by Sanda Herzic. The video of Judith was filmed in September 2010 in the Church of St Donat in Zadar, Croatia, and is a co-production with Croatian National Television.
