Hi Gill,
thank you for this highly interesting lesson, however, at this moment, unfortunately, for the rest part of the world, it is quite unnecessary. All the amenities (schools, museums, shops, theatres… ) are closed because of the coronavirus, all the streets are empty and scary. There is strict curfew here. That said, in two or three weeks, we could it need again. I hope so strongly.

IMO The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow is the best theatre in the world. What do you think about it?

Sunday, March 29th 2020

    what makes you state that it is the best in the world? I just think that it will be good if you can back up your statement wiht few arguments and comparations and then I’ll be able to aggre or disagee and explain my rational :)

      Hi Simona! Thank you for your reply. I made my state relied on memorial history ofThe Bolshoi Theatre and plenty of talented dancers famous around the world. One of them was Maya Plisetskaya. Her skills as a dancer changed the world of ballet. She set a higher standard for ballerinas, both in terms of technical brilliance and dramatic presence. The Bolshoi Ballet and Bolshoi Opera are amongst the oldest and most renowned ballet and opera companies in the world. It is by far the world’s biggest ballet company, with more than 200 dancers. Have you ever been in Moscow? My Skype is radydin, you can write me and I will tell you more interesting about that theatre and about Moscow.
