Following a critically acclaimed UK tour, the brand-new stage adaptation of Captain Corelli's Mandolin transfers to the Harold Pinter Theatre for a strictly limited, nine-week season from 4 July.
Cephalonia 1941. Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, is posted to the idyllic Greek island as part of the occupying forces. The Captain is soon thrown together with Dr Iannis' strong - willed and beautiful daughter Pelagia, who discovers all of the complexities of love, and how it can blossom in the most unexpected and profound way.
A cast of fifteen actors and singers bring Louis de Bernières' epic novel dramatically to life. Experience all of the passion and poetry that made this love story a multimillion best-selling novel and a smash-hit Hollywood movie.
From the vivid descriptions of the village and its inhabitants, to the brutal life and epic sweep of the soldiers caught up in the constantly changing politics of war, this stunning new production is directed by Olivier and Tony-Award nominee Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend) and Evening Standard Award winning writer and adaptor Rona Munro (The James Plays) and includes specially commissioned music by Harry Blake.

Sadly I did not enjoy itI was so looking forward to seeing this play but sadly it did not live up to my expectations. The play did not capture the love and romanticism of the book or the movie. Captain Corelli only appeared in the second part of the play which probably did not help to tell the love story between him and Pelagia.

Fantastic ProductionWe were seated in the dress circle and still had a very good view. The cast were excellent and the play was incredibly absorbing and moving. The set was simple but worked really well and some of the performances were simply outstanding. The music that was an integral part of the play was very atmospheric.
