Following a critically acclaimed UK tour, the brand-new stage adaptation of Captain Corelli's Mandolin transfers to the West End for a strictly limited nine-week season.
Based on the best-selling novel that inspired the hit film, Captain Corelli's Mandolin is an unforgettable love story set on the Greek island of Cephallonia against the turbulent backdrop of World War II.
Marking the 25th anniversary of the novel's original publication, Olivier and Tony Award-nominated director Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend) and adapter Rona Munro (The James Plays) bring this epic story vividly to life on stage.
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.
