What BBC2 can learn from the Telegraph.
Jane Root, controller of BBC2, wants to make her channel more like the Telegraph. Norman Lebrecht writes her an open letter explaining how she should go about it:

   If BBC2 are seriously interested in learning from the Telegraph, God forbid that they base their Arts coverage on the paper. We get little enough arts programming on the Beeb as it is .

In response to message #0
 
   On the cover of the November issue of the Covent Garden area's freebie magazine, there's a picture of Debbie Bull feeding a carrot to a donkey.

In Tuesday's Times, Raymond Gubbay is having another dig at the ROH: an advert for his production of Aida is headed: "Raymond Gubbay presents at the ROH (with the letters ROH crossed out) RAH".

   I wonder where this mythology about Gubbay presenting opera & ballet at cheap prices comes from? I can never afford to go to anything he presents because it's too expensive, and I'm not prepared to shell out £30 for a crummy view and bad acoustics in the RAH.

   Thanks, Fuzzyface, I couldn't agree more. He took over some local outdoor concerts a few years ago, if I remember rightly, and the price rocketed. And the only way I've ever been able to afford to see ENB at the RAH is either by special deals (they are available if you're really clever) or by paying the grand sum of £17.50 for a restricted-view seat (and believe me, some of them are *really* restricted), which is more than I pay for a non-restricted seat at Covent Garden. I'm trying to remember how much I paid for the (non-Gubbay, if I remember rightly) Royal Opera performances of Otello and Traviata there a couple of years ago, but I'm sure it wasn't that much. I've commented before about ENB at the RAH that the expensive seats are obviously much more highly populated than the "cheap" ones, so there's evidently a market out there for people who're prepared to pay £40-odd for a ballet ticket, they just don't want to do it at Covent Garden, or on an "unknown" ballet. And can you imagine the effect Gubbay would have on artistic creativity at the ROH? There's little of it enough as it is, but ...

   I do agree. His top prices may be a little less but his cheaper seats are expensive and often aweful. I made the mistake of booking cheaper,but not cheap, seats for Madame Butterfly and they were impossible. Trying to see the arena in the Albert hall from the balcony just does not work.

   Trying to see the entire arena in the RAH doesn't appear to work from anywhere higher than the Loggia boxes and stalls, as far as I can see, which is why all important bits of dancing/singing/acting etc. need to keep to the more central parts of the arena.
