About this event

John Wilson and his hand-picked orchestra return, with an all-star cast, for their first ever recreation of a complete musical. A Broadway classic, Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady is also the archetypal London show, its roots in George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Tonight's realisation revives the Oscar-winning orchestrations supervised by André Previn for the 1964 film.

There will be one interval
