A
STORY FROM INTERNET


 


Suvorovite A:  The story we are going to tell
you about we have found while traveling around the internet.


Suvorovite B:  This is a story about one suvorovite from Kiev Suvorov
Military School
and his first visit to the Opera and Ballet Theater in Kiev.


Suvorovite A:  And I can mention that this is the story
about theater, all right, but also about cadet and his girl-friend and it is a
little bit love story too
.


Suvorovite B:  Well, I agree with you. Here the story we
have found for you
:


Suvorovite A: (reading)


 


HOW I VISITED OPERA
AND BALLET THEATRE IN KIEV
.


 


            You ask me if I like an opera. Well,
definitely I like opera although I’m not a theatergoer I never miss a chance to
see a good play.


            I’ll never forget my first visit to
the Opera and Ballet Theater in Kiev.
It was long time ago, but I do remember this as if it was few weeks ago.


            I studied at the Kiev Suvorov
Military School

and was a cadet of the last year studding at that time. My girl-friend Tatiana
came to visit Kiev,
and I invited her to the Opera Theater.


            I bought tickets at the box-office
in advance. I knew that the best and the most expensive seats were in the
stalls and in the pit, but the seats in the upper circle and gallery were
cheaper. So I didn’t buy a gallery. I was poor cadet with not enough money, but
I was a gentleman at the same time and I took the pit.


We wanted to see the famous ballet “Swan Lake
by Tchaikovsky, but unfortunately it was “The Squadron Ruin”.






Suvorovite B: Then it
goes like this:


 So in
the day of the performance I was on leave. I came to the theater half an hour
the performance began. I was standing near the theater and waiting for Tatiana.
I was dressed in black tunic with red shoulder-straps and golden buttons, black
trousers with red stripes.


Suddenly she appeared. Tatiana had a very nice
new dress on. She is always well dressed.


I didn’t
buy flowers for her. Flowers in the theater, what for? But in front of the
theatre there were three huge stone vases with flowers called forget-me-not. I
said that I wanted to gift her some flowers. So I gifted her one of those three
vases.


 Even
today my wife knows that there is her own vase in Kiev just in front of the Opera Theater.


Suvorovite A: You see,
I told you, that is a love story. She is his wife now! But read on.


Suvorovite B:   Many people were standing at the theater
asking if we had an extra ticket. We passed through the entrance went to the
cloak-room, where I left my service cap. Then we bought a program to see what
the cast was and took our seats. I did try to locate the place where Stolipin
was killed. (Probably you know that famous Russian reformer Stolipin was killed
in Kiev in the
Opera Theater by terrorist).


            The orchestra was tuning in their
instruments. At 7 o’clock after the third bell the lights went out. The
conductor appeared the overture began. From the very first minute I understood
- that was really not “Swan
Lake
”. The plot wasn’t
interesting and all the play was in Ukrainian and this language wasn’t clear
enough for both of us.


            But to tell you truth the music was
nice and opera-singers were good.


I tell you
what – we were young and we enjoyed even to sit side by side, to say nothing
about opera.


            During the first intermission we
went to look over the theater. There were many pictures of famous
opera-singers, ballet-dancers, musicians and producers on the walls of the
foyer.


            During the second intermission we
went to the refreshment room (café) to have cup of coffee. When the curtain
fell at the end of the performance there came a storm of applause.


            This visit to the Opera and Ballet
Theater is our brightest memories.


 


Suvorovite A: 
The end of the story. In conclusion I should
say that theatre is not only an entertainment. William Shakespeare said, “All
world is a theatre”.  Now you have to
think, and not only about theater and opera, but about life and love in this
life. That’s it!
