Last month we reported that Beta, which Lace founded with creative Robert Campbell, was up for sale. The likelihood is that it still is. It’s also possible that Lace, who has had a colourful career, was an impediment to a sale to another agency.
Lace, it appears, actually resigned as a director of Beta in March and sold his shareholding to Campbell.
Lace says: “I have had a love of opera and the ENO for a very long time, and so when I was offered the chance to be more involved, it was something I had to think about very carefully.”
We shall follow Garry’s adventures in the world of culture with interest.
