Captain Corelli's Mandolin

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.

 

★★★★ ‘Blissful wartime romance. Wonderfully true to the much-loved book. BRAVO’ The Times

★★★★ ‘A fleet, muscular retelling. Liable to bring a lump to the throat’ Daily Telegraph

★★★★ ‘Wartime romance plucks at the heartstrings’ Evening Standard

    My mum (78) myself (51) and my daughter (21) booked this theatre trip as my mum’s birthday treat. Having learned the story from the film I found this stage production quite different and imaginative. Compelling and poignant. Brilliant acting and use of the stage with some great visual effects. Seated in stalls row H my daughter couldn’t see well past the tall person sat in front so we swapped seats for the second half to share the restriction. Otherwise first-class performance and would highly recommend .

    Totally surreal....this is diversity in the extreme! Not sure how the author would feel about the adaptation. The transformation of the pine martin to a human baby was nothing short of a miracle. Felt sorry for the goat with her bloomers caught up in her skirt. Looked a bit uncomfortable. Not sure about the doctor's frequent peeing on the herbs...he needs to get his prostate checked. The gender neutral aspect added a challenge when figuring out who was what. Some very interesting special effects especially the bomb scenes, though did worry about those heavy kit bags that the soldiers and soldierettes were carrying. Leading lady's voice had a bit of a hard edge to it.... but the poor old Greek mum's voice was pretty spectacular. The random accents and bursts of Italian, Greek and Italian added to the general cacaphony. Tremendous effort by all the cast. Some poignant and thoughtful touches.
