How to enjoy the performance

 There are musicals, orchestras, plays, operas and so on. Where do you reserve tickets for the performance? I know that booking a ticket is on Interpark or ticket link. When you reserve the performance tickets, you can get a discount of up to 50 percent. Now, let’s look at the three performances; musical, orchestra, and play.

1. Musical
Musicals started in the United States during the 19th century. It is a kind of performance that combines music, song, dance, and dialogue. It is simple but has a definite storyline and a sentimental, recreational feature. Musicals became popular for their singing and music. Modern musicals use microphones and electronic instruments. Generally, spectators watching the musical know to applaud at the end of an act. But, there are spectators who applaud at the ends of individual songs and sometimes when performers are still singing. Clapping at a musical is free unlike the other performances. It is up to the individual that is enjoying the show.

2. Orchestra
Orchestra was derived from the Greek and is also referred to as Philharmonic orchestra. These concerts are played with wind instruments such as the flute and string instruments like violin. There are different sections for the wind and string instruments in an orchestra. Typically winds are in the center and strings on the edge. Etiquette is very important during an orchestra concert. First, the concert hall has prohibited access after playing has started. If you arrive late, you must wait until the music has stopped and the ushers let you proceed. Second, there are several movements in many classic pieces of music. In this case, clapping is polite after all movements. Third, you shouldn’t make sounds in the concert hall. Also, devices that make sounds are prohibited within the venue. Finally, taking a photo is prohibited during the performance. This is because the flash may disturb the musicians as well as visitors. To enjoy the orchestra, please beware of proper etiquette at all times.

3. Play
A play is a performing art or theater art, because it takes the performance form of music and dance. It is composed of actors, a stage, spectators, and a story. Theater has been able to capture the tragedy and comedy in the long flow of history. Plays usually contain intellectual, ideological, or social content unlike the other arts. But plays do not have to be serious or ideological.  Some plays are comical. There are many opportunities to clap in plays unlike the other performances. Spectators may applaud with no break. This is an advantage of plays when communicating with audiences.

 Make sure to stop chatting with friends and turn on the vibration mode of your phone.  Follow these basic rules of etiquette for all performances. There will often be opportunities to enjoy these types of performances by the end of the year. Please do not hesitate to enjoy them happily.
