The return production will have a new home in the prestigious CAPITOL THEATRE.  Tickets go on sale on Monday November 7.

my-fair-lady-05The current season of My Fair Lady at the Sydney Opera House closes on November 5 after smashing box office records for selling more tickets than any other production in the history of the Sydney Opera House.

The cast for the 2017 return season at the Capitol Theatre will be announced in the coming months.

This stunning recreation of the 1956 beloved Broadway musical, directed by stage and screen legend Julie Andrews, has received rapturous reviews since it opened on September 6 at the Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House.

‘Spectacle at every corner of the stage.’ – Daily Telegraph

‘Julie Andrews delivers bloomin’ lovely anniversary show’ – Sydney Morning Herald

‘Standing ovations, just magnificent entertainment.’ – Alan Jones, 2GB

‘Julie Andrews re-creates classic original with a show that truly sings’ – The Guardian

‘My Fair Lady’s combination of George Bernard Shaw’s dry, acerbic British wit and the emotional  forthrightness of the American musical is undeniably potent.’ – Daily Review

‘My Fair Lady stands head and shoulders above the crowd.’ – Limelight

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said “The 60th Anniversary production of My Fair Lady has been a huge success for Sydney, breaking box office records and attracting visitors who contributed an estimated $7 million in overnight visitor expenditure for NSW. I congratulate all involved and am delighted in the role the NSW Government has played in securing the production and to see that it will return to Sydney next year.”

Producer John Frost said “Opera Australia and I are absolutely thrilled to announce this return season, Sydney audiences have embraced this stunning recreation and I cannot wait to see the production come to life again at the Capitol Theatre in 2017.”

my-fair-lady-09Producer Lyndon Terracini, the Artistic Director of Opera Australia, said “The ongoing success of this 60th Anniversary production of My Fair Lady has been a remarkable achievement for all involved. It’s been quite exhilarating to watch its popularity soar, so we’re delighted to be bringing it back to Sydney for all those who missed it the first time around, or those who loved it and are keen to see it again.”

This production of My Fair Lady celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the musical which took the world by storm, telling the tale of a Cockney flower girl named Eliza Doolittle whose world was forever changed by the brilliant and demanding phoneticist, Professor Henry Higgins.  The clash of cultures sparks some of theatre’s most witty dialogue and wonderful songs.

The return Sydney season of My Fair Lady will play at the CAPITOL THEATRE with previews from August 24 and opening night on August 27, tickets go on sale on Monday November 7.
