— Hello, Slava!
— Hello, Dima!
— Listen, Slava, would you like to go to the theatre tomorrow?
— Oh, with pleasure! I love theatre.
— Did you know that theatre is one of the oldest arts in Ukraine?
— I think it started with skomorokhy. They were wandering musicians and actors and performed during festivals and banquets at the courts of the princes and boyars.
— It is difficult to believe that it was nearly a thousand years ago!
— Yes since then Ukrainian theatre has greatly developed. And nowadays a lot of actors of Ukrainian origin are popular not only in Ukraine.
— Yes, Ukrainian people are very talented. I hope we will enjoy the play tomorrow.
— I hope so too. Theatre is the best of all arts for me.
