Captain Corelli’s Mandolin Tickets
CAPTAIN CORELLI'S MANDOLIN
Cephalonia 1941. Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, is posted to the idyllic Greek island as part of the occupying forces. Shunned by the locals at first, he proves to be civilised, humorous - and a consummate musician. 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 writer and adaptor Rona Munro (The James Plays) and includes specially commissioned music by Harry Blake.
The reality behind Captain Corelli's Mandolin: How a diary led to justice
The poster for the cinematic release of Captain Corelli's Mandolin, which depicted Penelope Cruz in all her bare-décolletage glory sharing an intimate kiss with Nicolas Cage, sold the 2001 war film as a romance. But hardly anything about the true events that inspired the book and film could be deemed romantic.
Now, having been adapted into a full-fledged stage play, Captain Corelli's Mandolin is set to hit the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre this August and we've taken it upon ourselves to compile a summary of some semi-recent events that went down regarding the 60-year-old true story. So what is the diary that recently brought a Nazi from the world of Captain Correli's Mandolin to justice? Find out below.
