Joan Sutherland's debut, the notorious Petrov Commission, a rumoured ghost and rowdy public meetings give Canberra's Albert Hall a history like no other. Albert Hall - the simple, elegant building at the heart of our national capital - was Canberra's only performing arts centre for its first 40 years. The venue for weekly dances, art exhibitions, and tours by the Royal Ballet and the Australian Ballet, Albert Hall has also hosted citizenship ceremonies and important national occasions. This beautifully illustrated book shares the history of this Canberra landmark for the first time.
