Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta End year deeply in red State theatre in financial peril By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) Britain's state-subsidized theatre, op- era and ballet companies, flagships of the national cul- ture, are deeply in the red at the end of a crisis-ridden year, bedevilled by inflation, rising costs and generally thinner audiences. The National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and Covent Garden's Royal Opera and Royal Bal- let, are all in varying depths .of financial peril and hoping 'for bigger grants from the Arts Council, which doles out treasury funds to keep the arts afloat. In the last financial year, the British taxpayer contrib- uted to the National, to the RSC in London and Stratford-upon-Avon, million to the English National Opera at Sadler's Wells and a whopping million to Covent Garden. In spite of this, Covent Gar- den expects a loss of in 1974-75.

THOMAS TRAVEL-LETHBRIDGE 329-3336 put on several of this year's productions, including Wag- ner's Ring cycle, an annual operatic event. He added that the theatre was reluctant to push seat prices up to a point where some patrons could no longer afford Garden's prices are already the highest in London, ranging up to for certain big- name productions such as the forthcoming La Traviata with Joan Sutherland. At the National Theatre, whose starkly modern new building on the south bank of the Thames should have open- ed next April but has been postponed indefinitely because of construction de- lays, the entire budgeting and production schedule for -1975 has been thrown out of gear. Director Peter Hall said they had planned for a theatre of seats but still are hav- ing to make do with one of beloved but now- threadbare Old Vic. Talking of the need for more gov- ernment help, he said if they did not get enough money to run the new theatre "as it should be the results would be "catastrophic." The National is proud that its audiences have not fallen off, as those of some other "We will certainly be in the red at the end of this financial he added, theatres have, on account of the general belt-tightening and drop in tourism which started with the three-day work week earlier this year. But the Royal Shakespeare reports a 20-per-cent drop in tourists visiting Stratford, and says its box office has been hit at botrnts theatres. Last year the company played to record audiences, with Stratford averaging 95 per cent of capacity. The commercial theatre has also had a bad year, begin- ning with the power cuts which accompanied the coal- miners' strike and kept many patrons at home. Backers are reluctant to risk expensive productions in Such an uncer- tain climate, and already one of the biggest attractions scheduled for the fall season, the Broadway hit A Little Night Music, has been shelved and now may not be seen in London.

She married Dr. Eckhardt five years later, and the cou- ple came to Winnipeg in 1953. During her career, she was invited by Leopold Stowkowski to play her own concerto for piano and violin with symphony orchestras in Philadelphia and Chicago.

Former party presi- dent Bill Johnson told delegates to the party's annual convention here that Social Credit has decided on series of prime time commer- cial spots before next year's provincial elec- tion as a move to con- vince voters that four years of Conservative government has, been an "unpleasant interlude NEEDED "People say they will vote for us if we can show them we are here to stay and not just a good name from the Mr. Johnson said as pledge cards were passed to delegates in an attempt to raise the more than need- ed for the TV campaign.

SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN Commemorative medals on display OTTAWA (CP) Com- memorative medals designed by Dora de Pedery-Hunt, in- cluding portraits of Prime Minister Trudeau and Dr. Norman Bethune, have been put on display in the Public Archives building. Mrs de Pedery-Hunt said the display represents a breakthrough for sculptors working in medals. Contemporary art medals are far different than the military medals which form the bulk of the National Archives collection of nearly different pieces. They are designed not so much to be worn as to be displayed, some of them measuring three to five inches wide and many of them of irregular shape Mrs. de Pedery-Hunt said in an interview about half her work in medals now is done on commission from various public bodies or private com- panies The other half of her time she reserves for medals of a pure art form She recently was commis- sioned to do medals for the National Ballet. One, of founder Celia Franca, has been cast in bronze, and she is working on a pair of portrait medals of dancers Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
