Special event: Live in conversation with Julie Andrews and daughter Emma Walton Hamilton

Together they have published 30 books and created several television projects committed to stimulating a sense of wonder and learning in children. This August, this mother/daughter duo will take to the Opera House stage for an exclusive Sydney-only event. Did we mention one of them is JULIE ANDREWS?

Dame Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton will share personal stories insights into their careers in the entertainment industry, just days before the opening night of Andrews’ recreation of My Fair Lady in a special one-off event.

Opera Australia and Gordon Frost Organisation are co-producing My Fair Lady, which Andrews will direct, and they are again teaming up to co-produce A Conversation with Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton on Sunday, 28 August 2016.

The event will be held on the set of My Fair Lady on the Joan Sutherland Theatre stage, Sydney Opera House and audience members will have the chance to engage with the pair, with a question and answer session scheduled.

“It is a thrill for me to be in Australia and have the opportunity to direct the very musical that significantly launched my career”, said Julie Andrews.

“I hope our production brings great joy to our audiences and stimulates a whole new generation of musical theatre lovers. This unique opportunity of having my lovely Emma join me on stage for an open conversation with an audience prior to our opening warms my heart.”

Tickets are on sale for the event from Monday 18 July at myfairladymusical.com.au
