We study the large N operator spectrum of the (1,0) superconformal chiral six-dimensional theory with E-8 global symmetry. This spectrum is dual to the Kaluza-Klein spectrum of supergravity on AdS(7) x S-4/Z(2) with a ten-dimensional E-8 theory at its singular locus. We identify those operators in short multiplets of OSp(6, 2\2), whose dimensions are exact for any N. We also discuss more general issues concerning AdS/CFT duality on orbifold supergravity backgrounds.
