Kefalonia, 1941. Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, is posted to the idyllic Greek island as part of the Axis 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’s 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.

Rona Munro’s adaptation of Louis de Bernières’ much-loved epic novel, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, premiered on tour of the UK in 2019, before transferring to London’s West End.

‘Shocking and wondrous’

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