Recommended Posts

Theodorakis' health has seriously deteriorated in the last hours. Doctors are in his home right now.

It's a hoax. If it was true it would be widely reported by Greek media.

If drol says it’s a hoax, he’ll be dead before the end of the week.

Damn this one hits close.

 

My uncle and aunt saw in person Mikis Theodorakis perform at the opening ceremony of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics while they were on their honeymoon. Mikis conducted a song called "Romiossini", which was sang by soprano Agnes Baltsa (who is still alive at 76 years old, just letting you know) and they were blown away by the performance. It still remains my aunt's favorite memory from that day and started my aunt's love for opera.

 

https://youtu.be/IzGCXdX6gig?t=8823 shows Mikis Theodorakis. The full performance of Romiossini is from 2:25:29 to 2:29:26

Well he was bedridden in his final days, likely unshowered so he did die like a true red.
