Ground-breaking, glorious and grand…
Celebrating the beloved original, Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady comes to the Regent Theatre, Melbourne from 12 May 2017, 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. The stellar line-up includes Downton Abbey star Charles Edwards as Henry Higgins, Anna O’Byrne as Eliza Doolittle, Reg Livermore as Alfred P. Doolittle, Robyn Nevin as Mrs. Higgins and Mark Vincent as Freddy. The role of Colonel Pickering is played by Tony Llewellyn-Jones and Deidre Rubenstein plays Mrs. Pearce.
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
"Miraculous. Ridiculously Beautiful"
