THEATRES, MUSIC HALLS AND CINEMAS

 

Theatres are very much the same in London as anywhere else;

the chief theatres ,music halls and cinemas are in the West End.

If you are staying in London for a few days, you'll have no

difficulty whatever in finding somewhere to spend an enjoyable

evening. You'll find opera, balley, comedy, drama, revue, musical

comedy and variety. Films are shown in the cinemas during the

greatest part of the day.

The best seats at theatres are those in the stalls, the

circle and the upper circle. Then comes the pit, and the last of

all the gallery where the seats are cheapest. Boxes, of course,

are the most expensive. Most theatres and music halls have good

orchestras with popular conductors.

You ought to make a point of going to the opera at least

once during the season if you can. There you can get the best of

everything - an exellent orchestras, famous conductors, celebated

singers and well dressed audience. But, of course, if you are not

fond of music and singing, won't interest you.

At the West End theatres you can see most of the famous

English actors and actresses. As a rule, the plays are

magnificently staged - costumes, dresses, scenery, everything

being done of the most lavish scale. Choose a good play, and

you'll enjoy yourself thoroughly from the moment the curtain goes

up to the end of the last act. Get your seats beforehand, either

at the box-office of theatre itself or at one of the agencies.

When you go to a theatre, you'll probably want to seat as near to

the stage as possible. But if you are at the cinema, you may

prefer to seat some distance from the screen. In fact, I would

say, the further away the better.
