A Theatre-Goer

I am a great theatre-goer. I love theatre very much. I try to see the most interesting performances that are on at our theatres. I am fond of the Alexandrinsky Drama theatre and the Opera House. I also try not to miss the performances of Moscow theatres, the Maly and the Art Theatre in particular. These theatres are famous for their excellent companies and wonderful acting. I usually go to the evening performances, and I try to buy tickets in advance. I like to have good seats in the stalls, or in the dress-circle. From these seats one gets a good view of the stage. I am fond of ballet. My favourite ballet is “The Swan Lake.” It has a long run and is always a greatsuccess with the public. Everything is magnificent there: the music and the dancing.

2. You are not much of a theatre-goer, are you?

14. Why does “The Swan Lake” have a long run?

Task 2 Using the following pattern, prepare a nice talk about how you went to the theatre the other day:

I am a great theatre-goer and (I am not much of a theatre-goer, but) I try to see the best performances that are on at our theatres. Such a large cultural centre as St. Petersburg gives a wide choice to theatre-going public. If one is interested in ......., one can visit the ...... or ...... ; if you prefer ......, you can go to the ...... or the ...... .
