The Moonlight Sonata by Yannis Ritsos, Trinity College – 25 March

A big “thank you” from the Hellenic Community of Ireland to the two exceptional actors
Marios Iordánou and Sophia Kazantzián, who made us all participants in “…the life and the fluttering of a moment…”
A big “thank you”, which indeed is not sufficient, for the honour they did to our small Community, by allowing us to be the point of departure for the dedicatory voyage to our great poet, Yannis Rítsos.
We were moved by their interpretation, they entered our hearts and minds, they enchanted the souls of our children…
Our warmest thanks to: the Embassy of Greece in Ireland;
Professor Dr. Christine Morris of the Department of Classics in Trinity College;
who was our host; to Marjorie Chambers, an alumna of TCD, who has translated Rítsos’s work, and to the students
Andrew Beazley, Paul Corcoran and Ellen Finn, who read the poem in English. And finally to all the tireless volunteers, who dedicated endless hours towards the success of the presentation, and of course to the wonderful members of the audience who filled the Long Room Hub to capacity.
Our thanks to you all.
