What is Captain Corelli’s Mandolin about?

It is 1941 in Cephalonia, an idyllic Greek island. Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, is stationed on the island as part of the occupying forces. The locals are determined to turn their backs on these interlopers. But as time goes on the young man shows himself to be civilised, humorous and, above all, a consummate musician.

Soon the captain is thrown together with Dr Iannis’ beautiful though strong-willed daughter, Pelagia. They both come to discover how complex love can be and how it can grow in the most unexpected and profound ways.

Corelli’s Mandolin comes to life at the West End's Harold Pinter Theatre

The amazing epic novel by Louis de Bernières is brought to life by an amazingly talented cast of actors. Directly following their runs at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, King’s Theatre in Edinburgh and Theatre Royal Glasgow, this passionate and poetic love story that inspired a smash-hit Hollywood movie, is coming to the Harold Pinter Theatre in London for a limited 8-week run.

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin cast and creatives

The 1994 Louis de Bernières best selling novel was made into a film of the same name in 2001. The film starred Nicolas Cage as Captain Antonio Corelli, Penélope Cruz as Pelagia, John Hurt as Dr Iannis and Christian Bale as Mandras.

The incredible stage adaptation is directed by Olivier and Tony Award nominee Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend) and writer and adaptor Rona Munro (The James Plays). There is specially commissioned music by Harry Blake. While the cast of the West End run has yet to be confirmed, it is hoped that the touring cast will reprise their roles. The cast is headed by Alex Mugnaioni, who is known for his work at Shakespeare’s Globe and who learned to play the mandolin for the role. Madison Clare plays Pelagia alongside Joseph Long as her father, Dr Iannis and Ashley Gayle as Mandras.

A very imaginative production which contrasted most interestingly with The Secret River, which I had seen at the National Theatre the previous evening. The portrayals of animals, soldiers, explosions, conflict, etc. must have presented considerable challenges, which were overcome in some style.

Lovely play, really well acted

Claire Melanophy1st September

Myself & italian husband loved the show, he plays the mandolin and was really impressed by the live mandolin music! Singing was fantastic, the 2 characters playing the goat and pine-martin really added to the show. Loved the theatre too. All in all, a lovely evening, would highly recommend it.

Stephanie Musgrove1st September

I struggled with the first half - not having read the book but loved the film - and found it very laboured. I can't understand why women were cast as male soldiers, were there not enough males available? It just didn't make sense to me. The second half was better in that the story flowed better. The acting was good - the goat deserves an award! - and Madison Clare played Pelagia, the strong young woman well. All in all I'd have preferred not to travel 3 hours each way to see it as it felt it was more suited to a provincial theatre.

Gail Walton1st September

It was quite an imaginative play and I enjoyed it, but some thought it was a little far fetched.


Poor quality,two actors acting the part of animals was an insult to ones intelligence z .The play was extremely boring and We did not meet Corelli for a very long time.We left the theatre at that stage and so I cannot comment further.


Brilliant interpretation of the story. Simple set very effective. Loads of humour as well as pathos.

Mary McInerney1st September
