ΝΕΟΝ collaborates with the Greek National Opera and presents the project The Artist on the Composer, curated by Giorgos Koumendakis, GNO Artistic Director and Elina Kountouri, NEON Director. Focusing on the relationship between visual arts and opera the project connects contemporary artists with classical music and opera to forge a singular synergy of different art forms within a single unified whole.

For its third iteration in 2023, The Artist on the Composer programme is commissioning the artist Ioanna Pantazopoulou to create an immersive installation in which visual art and music invite audiences to discover a magical, fairy tale world. The Artist on the Composer programme launched in 2019 with the newly commissioned work Noli me Tangere by Nikos Navridis and continued with its second commission to Yorgos Lanthimos and his short film Bleat, screened to the accompaniment of live orchestral music, presented in 2022.
