Henry Gordon Jago acquired the New Regency Theatre in the 1890s (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams), having sold the Palace Theatre as a result of the scandal following the Weng-Chiang incident in 1889 (PROSE: The Shadow of Weng-Chiang).
Jago owned the theatre until his death. Sometime later, the ballet Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was first performed at the New Regency Theatre. It was a huge success, selling out the theatre for months. (AUDIO: Swan Song)
