My Fair Lady

2017
Capitol Theatre

PRESENTED BY OPERA AUSTRALIA & JOHN FROST

Ground-breaking, glorious and grand...

After a record breaking, sell-out season, My Fair Lady returns to the Capitol Theatre in Sydney.

The Cinderella story about the Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, and the appealingly arrogant phoneticist, Professor Higgins, is an endearing tale that charms audiences  with its warmth and vivid characters.

The clash of cultures sparks some of the theatre's most jubilant songs and witty dialogue. The triumphant score features unforgettable numbers 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'.

In 1956, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's masterful retelling of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion took the world by storm. Playing the irresistible Eliza Doolittle was a young Julie Andrews, in only her second role on Broadway, a role that would catapult her into international stardom.

Julie Andrews directs this glorious production of My Fair Lady, teaming up with the Tony Award-winning Christopher Gattelli and associates of the musical's original designers, Cecil Beaton and Oliver Smith.

A stellar cast of Australian theatre royalty and emerging talent will be showcased in this truly momentous production.

This is a theatre event not to be missed.
