He is charging £267 for the grand tier, which, according to the period four booking brochure that I received today, has 124 seats, together with a similar price for 16 grand tier- level boxes, which each contain four seats. I make that 188, not 85, as stated in Mr Isaacs's letter.
So much unfairness can be disguised with a smokescreen of figures. An example: Mr Isaacs has pointed out before what a "bargain" his subscription scheme is. If you can afford several hundred pounds for seats in the stalls, you receive a discount of 20 per cent. If you can only afford the upper part of the house in the amphitheatre, you only receive 5 per cent or none at all. "To those that hath, shall be given."
