Greece: famous composer Theodorakis hospitalized in Athens
24 DECEMBER, 10:50


World renowned Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis was rushed to the Medical
Center of Athens, Greece, where he was hospitalized with a lower
respiratory tract infection. Theodorakis, as GreekReporter website writes,
had a high fever and was quickly admitted so that the doctors could monitor
his condition.

According to his treating physician, the situation is under control. His
hospitalization was deemed necessary in order for the doctors to be able to
subject him to all the essential tests. Theodorakis had been hospitalized
last year in the same Medical Center with a respiratory infection.

Theodorakis is thought to be the most well-known Greek songwriter and
composer alive today. He has written more than 1,000 songs, including
scores for the movies "Zorba the Greek," "Z" and "Serpico." He had always
been politically active, especially during the Greek military junta that
eventually imprisoned him. To this day, he continues to support
left-liberal causes and speaks in favor of Greek-Turkish-Cypriot relations.
On December 3, he officially became an honorary member of the Athens
Academy during a ceremony in his honor.
