This opera piece is from the austrian composer Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek. The piece of 2 acts tells the story about Judith and the general Holofernes and Judith. A story of passion, revenge, justice and confront of Feelings.
This Opera was never really represented on the stage, so for the Theater Bonn´s group it was a challenge and a lot of research. If you would like to know more about the process you can visit the Holofernes Opera Blog where the characteres and roles are describe more deeply.
Karioca was chosen among other dancers, to materialize the passion,the lust between Judith and Holofernes. It is/was one of the few chances to watch a oriental dancer in one of the most prestigious stages where you can be.. the opera!!!
