Kate: I’ve returned this morning.
Julia: Perfect. I’ll call for you at 6.15
K: Is this Julia? This is Kate.
J: Hello. How are you? I didn’t expect you to be back in Minsk.
K: Thanks a lot. Good bye.
J: Hold on a minute, please. I’ll switch the TV off. I’m glad you phoned me.
K: Julia, I’m calling to invite you to a ballet. The Yelizariev theatre is performing “Creation of the World” tomorrow.
J: Good bye.
K: At 7 p.m. and runs two hours. And then let’s treat ourselves to a cup of coffee at the theatre café.
J: Thanks a lot. I’d be happy to join you. I admire the way Yelizariev sees the dance and the dimensions he explores in his work are perfect to convey the artistic meanings. Well, when does the performance start?
6. Work in pairs. Your British friend offers you to join him (her) in visiting one of London theatres. The “London Theatre Guide” will help you to choose where to go.

7. Look through the dialogue and say why Mr. Smith didn’t manage to see a theatre performance.
Mr. Smith: Hello. How much is a ticket in the box for tonight?
Clerk: Sorry. The house has been sold out. There are no tickets at the book-office
for today. For any popular play it’s advisable to book seats in advance. But you might pick up a ticket at the entrance.
Mr. Smith: Oh, I don’t like to look for an extra ticket. I’ll make an arrangement for Friday night. Two best seats in the stalls or boxes, please.
Clerk: The best seats in the house are towards the centre of the third row in the stalls. Seats 14 and 15 are the first and second from the aisle.
Mr. Smith: All right. Thanks a lot.
Clerk: You better reserve the tickets in your name.
Mr. Smith: Alex Jonson. I’ll call for them some time around 5.30 on Friday.
Clerk: Don’t you worry. We’ll keep your booking till 6. Good bye.
Mr. Smith: Thank you. Bye.
