Festival Director: Stephen Hall
The 1990 Festival of Sydney saw great local and international talent taking the stage. Well-known Australian actor Leo McKern performed in Boswell For The Defence and the United Kingdom’s Victor Spinetti, known for his roles in The Beatles’ films, performed his one-man show A Very Private Diary. Local audiences were also delighted by the stunning production of The Rover from the State Theatre Company of South Australia.
In new events, the Sydney Harbour Helmet Ride happened for the first time, with cyclists following the foreshore from Mrs Macquarie’s chair to Darling Harbour.
