Culture and arts
The word culture has got several different meanings. It may be used to speak about group of people who share the same beliefs and attitudes. But the word is also used to speak about music, art and literaure that are a part of our lives. For many people today, culture is represented by arts (for example dance, opera, cinema, theatre, ballet, concerts), fine arts, for somebody even the television, internet belong the arts. It can help us to understand other people’s feelings, to tolerate different kinds of cultures, or simply gives us a nice, unforgettable experience. How rich our cultural life is, depends on both our interests and hobbies as well as where we live.
If you live in a big town, you have a good choice as cultural facilities are plentyful. Going to the cinema is an important part of youth culture in today’s society. Everybody prefers something else. Young people like restaurants or pubs and see it as a place to have a chat with your friends and family. You can also find one or two theatres in a large town, where you can choose the performance (a drama, a comedy, an opera, a musical or a ballet). Those who like fine art enjoy going to art galleries to see exhibitions (for example photographs, paintings, sculptures and book illustrations). Museums are always full of visitors at any time as people like to learn about the history of their region.
Cultural events that are most popular among young people are concerts and music festivals. They are usually held in the summer at sports stadiums, so the hundreds of fans can all get in.
If you happen to live in a small town or village, there aren’t so many opportunities to have a rich cultural life. The only facility are the local ’house of culture’ or the village club where discos or balls are held. Whenever people want to see a good film or a theatre performance, they have to go to the nearest town which can be expensive. The only choice for them is television, videos and possibly DVDs which are a bit cheaper.
I’m interested in musicals. My favourite is Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, which was performanced by a group of actors and actresses from Budapest. It’s the best musical what I’ve ever seen. The dance choreographies and songs are very poweful. I’ve seen it more than 10 times because it’s simply the best!
Anywhere you live, your life with works of fine art, music, fim and theatre will be pleasant and rich. Culture and arts challenge your imagination and make life more interesting.
