After Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

My Fair Lady is the story of the common man who wants to become more than he currently is, want to learn to read and enjoy life. At the same time it is also the story of the man who wishes to use the knowledge he has acquired to shape a human character and endow it with the skill every man should own: the ability to speak properly and elegantly, which is an unfailing tool of self-discovery.

If, in ancient times, Pygmalion falls in love with his perfect statue, nowadays Higgins sees his work talk, sing, dance, and get entangled in the lawless game of love. In fact, in My Faid Lady the two characters become close and then reject one another, hate and admire each other, in a constant musical back and forth. The far-reaching charm of music accompanies this getaway towards perfection and the ideal.

I loved working alongside the et designer, the conductors, the choreographer, the orchestra, ballet dancers, the chorus, the light designer, the soloists, all trying to get as close as possible to all that is human in this masterpiece.” – Ion Caramitru
