My Fair Lady - Frederick Loewe


My Fair Lady - Frederick Loewe

Professor Henry Higgins, a confirmed bachelor, is a phoneticist who loves to do field research. And if there is one thing he hates it is the disfigurement of his mother tongue by dialect! To him it is a matter of professional pride that his phonetic exercises can eradicate even the last trace of dialect in any subject, even a flower girl like Eliza Doolittle. Fully convinced of his skills, he bets his friend and colleague Colonel Pickering that he will be able to present Eliza as a society lady after just six months of speech and etiquette lessons. Her first introduction into the high society takes place at the traditional Ascot Derby, where Eliza makes some delightful blunders. But she continues her training until she passes her final test at the Embassy Ball with flying colours. Higgins has won his bet and for him the experiment is over. But not so for Eliza. Her new manners have changed her life. And eventually, the professor realises that his life suddenly seems empty without Eliza...
