It was one of the most successful musicals in Broadway history, from which the famous movie made the immortal myth of Audrey Hepburn. It's a classic of the musical comedy "My fair lady", the proposal that Bra's Politeama Theater "Boglione" has on Tuesday 16 February 2016. For the direction of Corrado Abbati, the famous melodies by Frederick Loewe on Alan Jay Lerner's lyrics freely taken from George Bernard Shaw's "Pigmalione" will resound in the Carlo Alberto square room for an evening where the opera performance will guarantee a flying to three hundred and sixty degrees on the stage arts: from fine song to drama; from music to comedy.
On Bra's stage will be proposed the skirmishes between Professor Higgins, well-known phonetic scholar, who after an evening at work faces the young florist Eliza Doolittle, from the rough and unremarkable ways. It will be this encounter to change his life, as the scholar bets with a friend, Colonel Pickering, to succeed in transforming the floral flower into a sophisticated lady of high society in six months. The plot will also involve the father of the young man in a series of comic and rocambolesque happenings, until he achieves the result and won the bet, Higgins will notice that he can no longer live without his Eliza. Will it be too late?
With Corrado Abbati on stage there will be, among others, Antonietta Manfredi, who will play Eliza Doolittle, Luca Mazzamurro, Riccardo Dall'Aglio, Fabrizio Macciantelli, Antonella Degasperi, Giovanni Gala, Claudio Ferretti, Cristina Calisi. The musical direction will be Marco Fiorini, the scenes by Stefano Maccarini, the costumes of Artemio Cabassi and the choreography by Giada Bardelli, for an evening that anticipates little of the 60th anniversary of the first performance of the musical at the "Mark Hellinger Theater" in New York , where "My fair lady" debuted in March of 1956.
The show's start is scheduled at 21, with a box office opened by 20. Tickets to attend the show are pre-sales, always at the theater's box office, Friday from 17 to 19 and Saturday from 10 to 12. Archived musical theater brackets, the next scheduled event for Bra Politeama Theater season will be the February 29 screening of the "Hadrian Memories" proposed by a sacred monster of Italian dramaturgy: Giorgio Albertazzi.
