russian_pianist Posted March 2, 2014 Report Share Posted March 2, 2014 Hello Everyone,Hope, all is well and you are working hard (and having fun at the same time) learning your favourite foreign language.I went to the opera today to watch the new production of Prince Igor composed by Borodin over 100 years ago. Beautiful music! Stunning performances! Well, I may be an easily excited one, so you may want to wait and see what the critics say.I thought I would refresh your memory on some theatre-related words today. After all, russians love theatre and they often invite their guests from foreign parts to join them to see a particularly interesting production. So, here are some words to help you not to get lost in the theatre:Фойе = foyerГардероб = cloackroom, checkroomПартер = orchestraАмфитеатр = amphitheatreЛожа = boxБельэтаж = mezzanineБенуар = baignoir boxОркестровая яма = orchestra pitЗанавес = curtainКулисы = backstageCпектакль = performance, playБуфет = buffet, cafeteria - where you can get all sorts of delicious refreshments Hope, you get to go to the theatre in Russia and enjoy your time there!Till next time Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
