Kristine Opolais joins a fantastic group of musicians for “WOMEN. LIFE. FREEDOM,” a benefit concert for human rights in Iran. Taking place on December 12, this important initiative will feature a diverse musical program with artists including sopranos Ambur Braid, Lilian Farahani, Giulia Semenzato, mezzo-soprano Anna Bonitatibus, countertenor Cameron Shahbazi, pianists Jeff Cohen and Sophia Munoz, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, flutist Azin Zahedi, violist Micha Afkham, cellist Kian Soltani, and drums Naghib Shanbehzadeh.

In addition to the musical program, there will be performances, literary contributions, and greetings from personalities such as Nargess Eskandari-Grünberg (acting mayor of the city of Frankfurt), Roya and Ladan Boroumand (co-founders of the Abdorrahman Boroumand Center), the actresses Sepideh Moafi and Jasmin Tabatabai, the opera director Pierre-Emmanuel Rousseau and others.

Five euros in all price categories correspond to the entrance fee for the event, and the rest is a donation to the non-profit organization Abdorrahman Boroumand Centre, which has been campaigning for more democracy in Iran for many years and documents the human rights violations committed there. If you would also like to donate, you can do so via this platform.
