Until recently the history of the
English theatre has been build around actors rather then companies. It has been
hard to find any London theatre that even had a consistent policy. There are no
permanent staff in British theatres. Apply is rehearsed for a few weeks by a
company of actors working together mostly for the first time and it is allowed
to run as long as it draws the odious and pays it's way.

Now "Covent Garden" in
busier than ever, it is one of the few well-known opera houses open for 11 months
