The Greek composer and his lyric opera plays “Medea”, “Antigone” and “Electra” will be promoted abroad as an “antidote” towards the image of Greece, which has been recently reviled internationally. On the 21st and 28th of August, a play will be performed at Epidaurus, with excerpts from his operas, an immediate reference to ancient Greek tragedy. The play will then tour to great cities abroad, such as Los Angeles, New York, London and elsewhere.
This will be a Hollywood production, as Asteris Koutoulas, a close associate of Mikis Theodorakis and organizer of his concerts worldwide stated to the Central Archaeological Council. The director of the play is a Greek American Hollywood director. Reportedly the director intends to start shooting a fiction film (i.e. with a plot), dedicated to the Greek composer.
The script writer of this film will be Nikos Papandreou (the brother of the Prime Minister), who has been in personal contact with Theodorakis for decades. The set, designed by Michalis Argyrou, will be kept simple. Mikis theodorakis himself will be responsible for the play, which will be recorded and broadcast in international TV networks, through the internet and on DVD.

About TheodorakisFriends

"TheodorakisFriends" is the name of my YouTube-channel and was set up in 2009, with the intention to collect all exisiting quality videos about and with Mikis Theodorakis' work as a composer, and also with and about his activities in politics and social life, from the far past till the present. In the meantime many thousands of videos are organized in more than 207 playlists. In 2010 the groups on YouTube disappeared from the channels, also my group Friends of Mikis, with many posts. To be able to continue with publishing mostly amazing information about and from Mikis Theodorakis, became the reason for creating the blog TheodorakisFriends: http://theodorakisfriends.com/
