Believing in the potential for an arts festival in Adelaide trough his involvement in the South Australia national theatre movement, journalist Sir Lloyd Dumas and Adelaide University music professor John Bishop enlisted the support of influential citizens to launch the festival in 1960 with a program of 105 performances (74 for adults and 31 for children) over the course of half a month. Today, the Adelaide Festival and its concurrent Adelaide Fringe Festival have grown become one of Australia’s leading arts festival events. Invited participants from Japan have included Daisan Erotica with A Man Named Macbeth in 1994 and Ishinha with Mizumachi in 2000.
