On Tuesday morning, Stephen D. Rountree gamely posed for pictures and sat down at a sunny cafe table alongside the fountain on the Music Center plaza for his first interview as president of the downtown performing arts complex. But the conversation had to take place early: Rountree, an affable 53-year-old Pasadena native, was on his way to a morning meeting in a trailer.

Renae Williams Niles is a name that stirs little recognition, but she is the most powerful person in dance in Los Angeles. It is her job, as director of programming, to select the companies and repertory for each season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center. But that description sells short her impact and influences in this city's dance life. Niles is highly regarded for her business acumen and knowledge of the art. Her unpretentiousness and sunny disposition have also won her fans.

While it is an honor to be in the lead of a story that covers the breadth of dance in Los Angeles ("Dance's Movers -- and Shakers," Jan. 22), the story leaves the mistaken impression that we do not offer a range of ticket prices to the community. One of our missions is to make sure that our attractions are available to the widest possible public. More than half of our tickets to Dance at the Music Center engagements are priced at $50 and below. In addition, we have a limited public rush for every performance (for details, see www.musiccenter.

The Times reports on the proposal to facilitate the building of a new museum on Grand Avenue by Eli Broad. We at the Music Center, Los Angeles Philharmonic and LA Opera support this project enthusiastically. In 1964, a downtown renaissance was set in motion by the creation of the Music Center. In the 1980s, MOCA planted its flag; then came the Cathedral, the Colburn School, the Walt Disney Concert Hall and a fabulous new arts high school. The commercial developments along Grand Avenue were inspired by the presence of world-class art and architecture — and the millions of visitors and international attention that they attracted.

Since the death of Edgar Baitzel in spring 2007, Los Angeles Opera has been without an official chief operating officer. Board chairman Marc I. Stern has been filling in on a volunteer basis, aiding general manager Placido Domingo in day-to-day company operations. But now the economy is forcing Stern -- who serves as vice chairman of TCW Group Inc. and is a senior officer of the global financial services company Societe Generale -- to focus his attention on these two very prominent day jobs.
