Nigel Wrench interviews Friday, 11 January, 2002, 13:13 GMT
Tony Hall
Royal Opera House
The Royal Opera House receives 21 million of public money every year, more than any other single arts institution. That is on top of the tens of millions that were spent on its rebuilding.

But isn't this a case of the public purse funding the elite?

The man who has been in charge at the Opera House for the past nine months is Tony Hall, former director of BBC News.

He denies the elitist tag, and tells Nigel Wrench that opera and ballet are for everybody.
