My Fair Lady was Truly Loverly

We have had a fantastic week performing My Fair Lady at Hertford Theatre as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations. With a strong cast and crew and excellent audience members, it was truly a show to remember.

Extracts of the reviews can be read below, and follow the links to read in full.

National Operatic & Dramatic Association Show Report

My Fair Lady was the perfect choice for Ware Operatic’s 50th Anniversary show ... This was a quality performance, thoroughly appreciated by the audience, given by a hard-working company under a dedicated production team. Read more

Ware Operatic are known for their consistently high-quality productions and their 50th-anniversary production of My Fair Lady is no exception ... Jilly Mabbitt plays the converted the role of Eliza. It's her first major role – but you'd never tell. Her performance captures the essence of Eliza perfectly ... Once again the strong ensemble is the backbone of the Ware's productions. They always produce a tremendous full sound in the crowd scenes that helps to keep the quality of Ware's productions exceptionally high.

My Fair Lady is another worthy addition to Ware Operatic's repertoire, especially as it marks their golden anniversary. With such a competent creative team and some very talented performers they should have no worries about making it through the next fifty – now wouldn't that be loverly.

Thank you to everyone who supported, either by taking part, watching the show, or working hard behind the scenes.
