Great Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis was discharged from hospital on Thursday after undergoing surgery to install a pacemaker last week.
The 94-year-old composer of “Zorba the Greek”, “Axion Esti” and many more iconic music works was admitted to a private hospital in Athens on 26 February after suffering from heart problems.
The composer has suffered from heart problems in recent years, however he has continued to engage in public affairs. He has been particularly vocal on the Prespes Agreement and addressed a January rally opposing the solution found for the name dispute with Greece’s neighbouring country that is now officially known as North Macedonia
Mr Theodorakis enjoyed great respect as a composer and political figure for his activities during the 1967-1974 military dictatorship in Greece.
