[cairo] Rendering SVGs in OpenGL

I am looking for a library to use Vector Graphics (preferable SVGs) in
games. I wonder if cairo is a good choice.
So I have some questions:

When cairo renders svgs using the OpenGL backend, is the rendering done
using OpenGL calls or is it done in software?
When searching for OpenGL with cairo, I only find this:
but if I understand correctly, there cairo renders to a texture which is
then used in OpenGL. That is not what I want.

What are the best resources to learn using cairo with OpenGL and SVG?
