Anniversary Events 2013
This year we celebrated 40 fabulous years of shared arts and entertainment experiences.
With a special 40th anniversary performance in the Festival Theatre paying tribute to the opening night program in 1973 which included Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
We kicked up our heels with a revival of The Fezbah and the Festival Centre's iconic shells dazzled for a month when Internationally acclaimed artists The Electric Canvas brought them to life in a stunning light and sound show.
You can also view the "Happy Birthday" messages we have received from a variety of stars and a personal letter from Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Two books have been commissioned to celebrate the anniversaries. These books feature performers, companies, audience feedback and interviews with prominent people who have had an association with Adelaide Festival Centre and Her Majesty's Theatre.
