We like watching everything and I think that every play is unique.
Last month we went to the theatre to see the play «Romeo and Juliet*. Everybody knows the plot of this sad story but still it was a pleasure to see the actors and actresses love and die for it. Our seats were on the balcony so I could see everything very well. It was a wonderful performance. I enjoyed every minute of the play. The actors were really very good, especially the actress playing Juliet. Her dress was beautiful. I was impressed very much.

The costumes and the makeup of the participants were fantastic, so rich and light at the same time. It seems that they were dressed in air and their faces look natural. The actors’ and actresses’ play was remarkable. It seemed that they did not perform but live on stage. They put their soul in every word and every move. It looked really great. The people were pleased so after the performance they took many curtain calls. And the spectators liked the music very much as it was united with the play and seemed to be part of it.

I liked this performance very much.
