Linguist and bachelor Professor Henry Higgins meets Eliza Doolittle, the daughter of garbage man Alfred Doolittle, while selling violets at the Royal Opera House on a cold March evening. Later, she seeks out Higgins for speech lessons so she can become “a lady and have her own flower shop”. Higgins and Colonel Pickering, also a linguist, make a bet on whether Higgins can teach Eliza to speak correctly. After weeks of hard work, she is presented at the Ascot Derby, but falls through when she cheers for one of the horses she has bet on. Six weeks later, she is introduced at the Embassy Ball and everyone wonders who she is. Higgins and Pickering wallow in self-satisfaction over their achievement, completely overlooking Eliza’s own efforts. This infuriates Eliza and she storms out of the house. After Eliza leaves him, Higgins realizes that he has grown accustomed to her and can hardly live without her.

Loewe's captivating music is in Mikkel Rønnow's safe hands. He looks as if he has never done anything other than conducting an orchestra. And he hasn't. Has he?
