The Academy of Sacred Drama is a Baroque-style artistic and intellectual community based in New York City. The 2017–2018 season features a Year of Judith dedicated to the performance of Judith-themed oratorios rarely or never heard in modern times. For each oratorio performed, the Academy creates Academy Journals that explore the text and context of the oratorio and examine the Academy organizational format.
