Did you know?

The “Silver Jubilee Organ” organ in the Festival Theatre was made by Rieger-Orgelbau of Austria. They were commissioned in 1978 to build a striking concert hall organ to mark the 25th year of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

Because the stage is used for opera, ballet and drama, the organ needed to be able to be removed and so a hovercraft system was designed so that the organ could be “floated” back into the world’s largest cupboard.

The pipes are all open toe voiced on relatively high wind pressures with minimal nicking. The Hauptwerk Principal 8′ has double pipes for most of its compass. 

The organ was inaugurated by Dr Peter Hurford on 2nd April, 1979.
