'I am absolutely delighted that HRH The Prince of Wales has agreed to become our Patron. He has been the most tremendous supporter of us all and it is wonderful that he has agreed to deepen his relationship with us even further' ~ chief executive of the Royal Opera House Tony Hall announcing HRH's appointment as Patron.

'I have always found the Prince's lack of interest in anything to do with the arts in our time depressing, since all his opinions get so widely reported. It seems to me that he has had unrivalled opportunities to get to understand the twentieth century, but he has rejected it without hesitation. Both Denys Lasdun and Colin St John Wilson of the British Library, found work hard to get in the UK in the aftermath of the Prince's criticisms'~ former BBC controller of music and Proms & Edinburgh Festival director John Drummond.
I await the next Covent Garden Lulu with interest.
