До революции поговаривали, что в Москве только два трезвых извозчика: на Триумфальных воротах, да на Большом театре

Увы в театре много людей, которые не понимают что не надо хлопать и кричать"браво" во время балета или оперы. Есть специальные паузы для этого. В общем будьте готовы к овациям каждые 5 минут.
