Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Tour synopsis, cast & creatives
Set on a Greek Island of Cephalonia from the Second World War to the present day, Captain Corelli's Mandolin
tells the story of Dr Iannis, his daughter, Pelagia, the heroic Italian soldier, Carlo Guercio, the mandolin-playing Captain Antonio Corelli and the love they all share. It's a passionate story that sweeps you up with joy one minute then makes the fright and rage of war boil in the stomach the next. It is full of laughter and tears, the joy of love and, ultimately, the triumph of life over death.
