Szegedi Kortárs Balett: Stabat Mater


Arvo Pärt: Stabat Mater

The piece represents the moment of the Annunciation, when the Archangel Gabriel appears to the young Mary and delivers the Word, according to which the Virgin is carrying the child of God in her womb. But then a vision appears to Mary of the painful future in which she sees her son’s suffering, humiliation and crucifixion. She can feel her maternal pain as well, as she is standing by the cross mourning the death of her son. But more strongly than anything else she feels the holy cause, the noble task, that Jesus will perform, in which she will have to play a part as his mother. Elevated by the knowledge that even in her painful fate she will serve God’s will, for the good and salvation of humanity. She consciously and willingly undertakes this blessed state and all the joy and sorrow attendant upon it.

Pergolesi: Stabat Mater

This piece is dedicated to the pain of the eternal Mother on losing her child. It is about the most horrible feeling following the experience of the greatest joy. It is about the direct pain felt on the loss of a child and also about the loss of immortality, the discontinuity of heredity, breaking the connection with the endless chain of the universe, thus about the meaninglessness of existence. But at the same time it is also about faith, that nothing is in vain and that after the pain and suffering there is hope for reunion. A great number of mothers have been forced to experience the loss of their child owing to wars, illnesses, oppression and other horrors. This piece commemorates them evoking the Virgin Mary standing in front of the cross. We remember a mother who carried God’s child under her heart, and all mothers who believe they have found God’s face in the smile of their child.
