Yorgos Lanthimos’ highly anticipated new film, Bleat –the second work to be commissioned as part of the GNO and NEON programme The Artist on the Composer– is to have its world-first premieres accompanied by live music ensembles on 6, 7 and 8 May 2022 inside the Stavros Niarchos Hall at the SNFCC. The Greek National Opera’s participation in the co-production is made possible by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to enhance the GNO’s artistic outreach.
The Artist on the Composer programme –run by the Greek National Opera and NEON – connects pioneering contemporary artists and filmmakers/producers with orchestral music performed live. Through works that spring from the programme’s new commissions, each artist responds to, and enters into dialogue with pieces by classical composers, free from every standard operatic convention, trope and storyline, in the hope of reaching audiences who may never have connected with opera before.
