My Fair Lady

 

24 – 28 October 2017

She’s back! Nottingham Operatic Society are thrilled to bring a brand new production of Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady to Nottingham Theatre Royal in 2017.

Described by the New York Times as “One of the best musicals of the century”, this Cinderella story of the transformation of the Cockney flower girl, Eliza Dolittle by the pompous Professor Henry Higgins continues to entrance audiences worldwide with its perfect blend of warmth, humour and glamour.

The musical’s 1956 Broadway production was an enormous success, setting a record for the longest run of any major musical theatre production in history. It was followed by a hit London production, the film version with Audrey Hepburn, and several revivals.

The show features some of Lerner & Loewe’s best songs, including ‘Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?’, ‘The Rain in Spain’, ‘On The Street Where You Live’, ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’ and ‘Get Me to the Church on Time’.

With spectacular sets, glorious costumes and a full orchestra, this looks set to be one of the theatre highlights of 2017. Book early to get the best seats in the house.
