Manos Hadjidakis was born in Xanthi in northern Greece and studied philosophy at Athens University while acquiring his musical training. His career brought collaboration with the Greek National Theatre and a position as head of the Third Programme of Greek National Radio, after a period spent in New York.

Stage and Orchestral Music

Hadjidakis wrote the theme song for the film Never on Sunday and collaborated in ballets with Maurice Béjart. His concert work Gioconda’s Smile, with its theme of a solitary woman in a big city, has a strongly dramatic element.
