Theodore Stathis

Dr. Theodore Stathis is currently President of the National Capital Group, a fully owned subsidiary of National Bank of Greece, in Athens Greece. He began his studies at the University of Vienna in Austria and completed them at Columbia University in New York, where he received his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences. Theodore Stathis initially followed an academic career and worked as an Assistant Professor at the New York University. In addition, he was President of Advanced Acoustical Research Corp., Vice President of Ecolotrol, Special Sciencetist - Lecturer at the Polytechnic School of Patras University. He has also worked as a visiting professor at the University of Macedonia.

Prior to going into the private sector, he was a member of the Greek Parliament, Deputy Minister of National Defense, Deputy Minister of Cultural Affairs and Minister of Agriculture for Greece. He has written a book titled "The National Defense & it’s Achilles' Heel," and a series of articles on defense, foreign policy and security as well as many scientific papers and textbooks. 

Dr. Stathis’s musical career began later in life when he took a special interest in Hindemith, who introduced him to the world of composition. He began writing musical ideas (like musical motives) that were used in conjunction with models of musical bass lines created by great masters, like Beethoven in their musical works. Other great composers, especially Beethoven, used these to build complete 'new' music epikodomimata-projects. From there he moved on to his great passion of ancient Greek tragedy. He wrote music for the translated lyrics of Sophocles’s “Antigone” and Euripides “Alcestis”. This effort resulted in the composition of the opera "Antigone" and the opera "Alcestis" for which he composed both the music and the libretto. His third opera titled "Opus Elgin: The destruction of the Parthenon” was written to assist in the effort to return the Parthenon Marbles back to their original homeland.
