Celebrating the beloved original, Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady, directed by Julie Andrews, will be playing at the Capitol Theatre.

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

The producers, Opera Australia and John Frost, are pleased to announce the principal cast for the return season. The Sydney season will be led by acclaimed theatre, film and television actor Charles Edwards, as Professor Higgins. Most recently Edwards appeared in the ABC TV series The Halcyon, the widely-acclaimed television series Downton Abbey and the feature film Diana. He has played leading roles on Broadway & the West End, and his theatre credits include The 39 Steps, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the lead role of Bertie in the original stage play of The King's Speech.

The cast will also feature stars from the record breaking 2016 Sydney Opera House season. The lead role of Eliza Doolittle is portrayed by Australian star Anna O’Byrne. O’Byrne has a growing international career spanning opera, theatre, concert and film and has had starring roles in theatre productions including Love Never Dies and The Phantom of the Opera. Reg Livermore and Robyn Nevin will reprise their critically acclaimed performances as Alfred P. Doolittle and Mrs Higgins. The role of Colonel Hugh Pickering will be played by Tony Llewellyn-Jones and Deidre Rubenstein will play Mrs. Pearce. New to the role of Freddy Eynsford-Hill is young tenor Joel Parnis.

This is a theatre event you dare not miss.
