ATHENS, GREECE (March 22, 2022) — Yorgos Lanthimos’ highly anticipated new film, Bleat—the second work to be commissioned as part of the Greek National Opera (GNO) and NEON program The Artist on the Composer—is to have its world premiere accompanied by live music ensembles on Friday, May 6, Saturday, May 7, and Sunday, May 8, 2022 in Stavros Niarchos Hall at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (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 award-winning Greek filmmaker (The Favourite, The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Dogtooth) accepted the invitation extended by GNO Artistic Director Giorgos Koumendakis and NEON Director Elina Kountouri to produce, write, and direct the short film Bleat, shot on the Greek island of Tinos in February 2020, and starring Oscar-winning American actor Emma Stone and acclaimed French actor Damien Bonnard.
