Letter: Funding the future of Scottish Ballet

Click to follow
Sir: Perhaps members of the Scottish Arts Council can afford to travel to London and Birmingham to see the Royal Ballet Company, but the vast majority of theatre-going Scots are not so fortunate. Are we, therefore, to be deprived of a dance company in Scotland in order to support, through our taxes and lottery money, an already over-subsidised Covent Garden?

Scottish Ballet does sterling work bringing dance to people in the more remote areas of Scotland. When was the last time the Royal Ballet and Royal Opera performed in Scotland?
