Tilda Swinton Directs Dogs In Film

It appears in opera exhibition in New York

The Glass Handel project features stars from dance, painting, music, fashion and film to showcase the music of George Frideric Handel and Philip Glass. This operatic art event features a range of artists with the goal being “to create a new way to experience live music, offering each audience member a unique immersion.”

I’m primarily interested in the dog piece that appears as a part of the extravaganza. (Shocking, I know.) The canine contribution to this innovative art installation is a short film co-directed by actress Tilda Swinton and visual artist Sandro Kopp, who have been in a relationship for about 15 years. The film shows her dogs playing on a beach in Scotland and is set to Handel’s aria “Rompo i Lacci” from his opera Flavio (sung by countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo).
