If you want to see a performance in a theatre, you should buy or book the tickets in advance. Theatre performances take place in the evening and there is always special class atmosphere so people should wear nice clothes when they go to the theatre. After you come to the theatre, you leave your coat in a cloakroom and an attendant will show you your seat. When the performance ends, the audience applauds and the curtain falls. If the performance is excellent, the actors can get a standing ovation.
An art gallery - in an art gallery, we can see exhibitions of classical or modern art. For example the exhibitions of: photographs, paintings, sculptures, book illustrations.
