Thanks for this Joanne. Sadler's Wells ia a remarkable success story. Artistically, performances there won both the dance awards at the recent Oliviers and I'm delighted to hear that the one-time precarious financial position has been resolved. <P>It is a wonderful asset for dance fans and we all owe Ian Albery and his team a great debt of gratitude for the riches they place before us. I hope Albery does find another tough Arts nut to crack.

The staff at Sadler's Wells are extremely helpful and courteous whichever of the offices you deal with.

IAN ALBERY
Despite being descended from a grand theatrical lineage, the chief executive of Sadler's Wells has worked hard on his career, writes Jeremy Austin in The Stage.


Where does one start when writing about Ian Albery? The out-going chief executive of Sadler's Wells has not only lived a life filled with so many theatrical anecdotes that it probably makes Ned Sherrin salivate, he has also achieved an awful lot.

But then he comes from a family that has achieved an awful lot too. He is possibly one of last major figures in a London theatrical dynasty that stretches over three centuries and has contributed to the construction and operation of some of the capital's best-loved venues.

His great-grandfather was Charles Moore, promoter for the Royal Victoria Hall and father of Mary Moore, who married Charles Wyndham and raised the money to build the Wyndham's and New Theatres.

The arts column: realism always beats a magic wand

This pattern has recently unfolded again, this time at Sadler's Wells. Rebuilt under the Lottery, the Wells sits outside the West End in an odd position, doubling up as both a neighbourhood theatre for Islington and a front-rank venue for dance. Its financial position has never been robust.

Rupert Christiansen's views on the events at Sadler's over the past two years accord almost exactly with my own. I would go one step further and point out that of the two big events planned by Chopin, both were lyric theatre rather than dance and was backed up by his various vision statements for the theatre. This move away from Sadler's traditional strength seemed ill-judged.

Interesting to hear that he was rubbishing his predecessors at the job interview as this attitude came across loud and clear in his interviews and made my blood boil. Sadler's is a big success story in British dance of the past 5 years and under Spalding and Sharp I hope it can get fully back on track. Thankfully Spalding's steadying hand through the Choplin era has meant that we have still enjoyed high quality dance, just not as much as we might have done.
