ANDREI (short film)

Dimitra Trypani


SNF Lead Donor of GNO


Andrei: Requiem in eight scenes, a new work by Dimitra Trypani commissioned by the Greek National Opera, is to be presented inside the GNO’s Stavros Niarchos Hall at the SNFCC for three performances, on 25, 27 and 28 September 2022, featuring an acclaimed cast of performers. It is a singular, contemporary funeral liturgy for the great filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, an artist who rendered thoughts and feelings with images of unparalleled beauty and intellectual vigour. The libretto, written by Pantelis Boukalas, enters into discourse with the German text of the Lutheran Requiem Mass, and with fragments of dialogue drawn from the seven feature films made by the Russian artist.
