My Fair Lady: A Voice for Change  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Marcie Ray, College of Music

In coordination with the Music in American Life speaker's series

Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's musical My Fair Lady features an impoverished flower girl, Eliza, who learns how to speak proper English with the assistance of phoneticist Henry Higgins. But it is more than just an English accent that Professor Higgins teaches Eliza. Both her body and speech become obedient to models of upper-class femininity. While her new speech and comportment enable her to overcome obstacles related to her class, ultimately it is in song that Eliza demonstrates her transformation.
