Zorba the Greek teaches his life-embracing philosophy to a more uptight young student who has inherited a mine in Crete. Zorba maintains his joy in living despite several tragedies, in John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joseph Stein's musical adaptation of Nikos Kazantzakis' novel Zorba the Greek and its 1964 film.
