PRESENTED BY OPERA AUSTRALIA & JOHN FROST
Ground-breaking, glorious and grand...
Last chance to see the magnificent My Fair Lady now playing at the Capitol Theatre Sydney only until 14 October, under the direction of Julie Andrews.
Opera Australia and John Frost take pride in presenting the beloved story of Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins to a new generation of theatre audiences.
Director Julie Andrews has assembled a cast of theatre royalty for this 60th anniversary production including Downton Abbey’s Charles Edwards, Anna O’Byrne, Reg Livermore, Robyn Nevin, Joel Parnis, Tony Llewellyn-Jones and Deidre Rubenstein.
My Fair Lady is an endearing tale that charms audiences with its warmth and vivid characters. The clash of cultures sparks some of musical theatre’s most witty dialogue and jubilant songs including 'Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?', 'On The Street Where You Live', 'I Could Have Danced All Night' and 'Get Me to the Church on Time'.
Don’t miss the musical about the Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and the appealingly arrogant phoneticist, Henry Higgins — hailed by The Australian as "Miraculous. Ridiculously Beautiful".
