Stabat Mater (trailer 2)

Trailer 2 from Line Tjørnhøj's experimental multimedia opera Stabat Mater (2009). Despite its rather intense subject matter Line describes the work as an 'opera about hope'.

On 15 August, 2004, Atefah Sahaaleh was hanged in a public square in the Iranian city of Neka. Her death sentence was imposed for "crimes against chastity". Judge Haji Rezai put himself the noose around her neck. She was just 16.

(Trailer 2 has different music than the first even though the visuals are the same.)
