Dame Julie Andrews will direct a new production of My Fair Lady for Opera Australia, to premier at the Sydney Opera House next year.
Andrews famously played the role of Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle in the 1956 Broadway production, opposite Rex Harrison. The 79 year old says she was thrilled to be asked to direct the show. Casting will occur in November. The show is scheduled to open next August.
