Ground-breaking, glorious and grand.
Celebrating the beloved original, Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady comes to the Capitol Theatre Sydney from August 24, 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.
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.
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 hailed by The Australian as “Miraculous. Ridiculously Beautiful”, about the Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle and the appealingly arrogant phoneticist, Henry Higgins.
