    The democratisation of dance was actually attempted as early aswhen Lilian Baylis oversaw the rebuilding of Sadler's Wells as a showcase for new British ballet, and opera. To produce the spectacle, ships were built exactly to scale of an inch to a foot in comparison to the Naval ships in the war. The Royal Ballet also has the special ranks of "guest artist" and "principal guest artist". Under the artistic directorship of Alistair Spalding sinceSadler's Wells has expanded to become a production house as well as a receiving househosting performances by visiting companies from the UK and around the world. No booking fee applies, and registered holders can purchase two tickets per production, for shows across Sadler's Wells ' three venues - Sadler's Wells Theatre, the Lilian Baylis Studio and The Peacock.

The new design gave a stage which was wider and deeper and able to accommodate much larger companies and productions than the one it replaced. The competition will run for four years, with a winner receiving a cash prize and the chance to perform at Sadler's Wells Sampled, the taster weekend which each January showcases the huge range of dance to be seen throughout the year at the theatre. In addition, Sadler's Wells, strategically near but not in the West End, was seen as the ideal launching pad for artists at the outset of their careers.

    She also details the lucky timing of the theatre's transformation. The company relocated to the opera house the same year inwith their first production at the venue being The Sleeping Beauty. The company now uses Peter Wright's production of The Nutcracker, which uses some of Sergeyev's notation. If you had an unlimited budget and artistic control of the Wells for 2 weeks what would you commission?
