WORLD PREMIERE AT CURVE

Based on the best-selling novel by Louis de Bernières that inspired the hit film, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin makes its world premiere across the UK in 2019. Set on the Greek island of Cephallonia, this is an unforgettable love story which evolves against the turbulent backdrop of World War II.

Dr Iannis loves the island of Cephallonia and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter Pelagia. Carlo, an Italian soldier, learned what it means to love whilst fighting in Albania. Pelagia loves her father and the fisherman Mandras. The young Italian Captain Corelli loves only his music. And then in 1941, the idyllic Greek island awakes to find itself in the jaws of war, under Italian and German occupation.

As history unfolds, everything they thought they knew and understood changes.

Marking the 25th Anniversary of the novel’s original publication, this epic journey is brought vividly to life for the stage by Olivier and Tony-Award nominated director Melly Still (My Brilliant Friend and Coram Boy) and playwright Rona Munro (My Name Is Lucy Barton and The James Plays). In an extraordinary tale of human fragility at a time of war, we discover how enemies forced together must learn to co-exist, and that all kinds of love can blossom in unimaginable circumstances.
