The concert narrates the life of MikisTheodorakis and brings alive his music and his struggles. Well-know and famous melodies live on stage with an orchestra of Greek musicians in exciting arrangements with traditional, classical and jazz elements. Dramatic narration and interpretation in songs like “The honey moon song” sung by the Beatles, “ Les amants de Teruel“ sung by Edith Piaf and Zorba’s dance will bring to life one of the most significant and iconic figure in the musical word of the 20th century.
MikisTheodorakis’ musical talent has been widely acclaimed nationally and internationally. He has written over a thousand compositions: popular songs, symphonies, chamber music, ballets, and theatre and film scores. In addition to his distinguished career as a composer, his multifaceted career has been characterised by his pursuit of civil as well as musical freedom: he has been a politician, activist and intellectual thinker. With his emblematic compositions, such as the ‘Axion Esti’ (1960-1962), Theodorakis’ music constitutes an integral part of the historic and aesthetic identity of the Greek people.
