This addition to the Music Theatre Hour series offers the highlights from TER's Gramophone Award winning "complete" 'My Fair Lady'. Based on George Bernard Shaw's play "Pygmalion", Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner's musical tells the charming story of the love between the insensitive Professor Higgins and the flower-seller Eliza Doolittle. Both in the theatre and on the screen this show has proved itself to be one of the most perfect musicals of all times. Only recently it's popularity was reaffirmed by the long running West End transfer of the National Theatre's production which starred Martine McCutcheon (East Enders).
This digital surround recording, stars Alec McCowen as Professor Higgins, Bob Hoskins as Alfred Doolittle and opera star Tinuke Olafimihan as Eliza Doolittle, the Cockney girl who wants to speak proper English, and contains all the well known songs we have come to love - "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?", "With A Little Bit Of Luck", "I Could Have Danced All Night", "On The Street Where You Live", "Get Me To The Church On Time", "The Rain In Spain", "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face", and "Show Me", performed exquisitely by the National Symphony Orchestra under the acclaimed conductor John Owen Edwards.
