My Fair Lady The Opera Aus­tralia-John Frost re­vival of the orig­i­nal 1956 pro­duc­tion of My Fair Lady is mirac­u­lous. Di­rec­tor Julie An­drews, the orig­i­nal El­iza, de­liv­ers a fresh, vig­or­ous show with­out a drop of sen­ti­men­tal­ity. The pol­i­tics of class, sex and ide­ol­ogy con­tained in Ge­orge Bernard Shaw’s Pyg­malion, from which My Fair Lady is adapted, are given a bright tang and the cast­ing is top-notch. Star­ring Anna O’Byrne as El­iza Doolit­tle and Charles Ed­wards as Pro­fes­sor Higgins. Capi­tol Theatre, 13 Camp­bell Street, Syd­ney. Tick­ets: $69.90$149.90. Book­ings: 13 61 00 or on­line. Au­gust 24-Oc­to­ber 6. Dry Land
