There is a scene in the Wiseman documentary on the POB where representatives are negotiating a visit for donors from the Lehman Bros firm... and I kept wondering... Isn't the POB a government agency? And they still take donations? How does that work?
I think most of the major theatres in Europe that present ballet have financial support over and above government subsidies. The Royal Opera House Limited for instance is beginning to project itself as much of being a corporate status organisation than purely an arts organisation which, give the recent financial situation, is no doubt a necessity. The last published accounts of March 2008 showed it received a state subsidy of £26.3m .
