Enjoying Xiamen's live theaters

2017-10-11

Adam: Hey Li Mei, guess what? I just landed two incredible tickets for the Secret Garden concert at the Banlam Grand Theater.

李梅,我跟你说,我刚刚买到了两张闽南大剧院《秘密花园》的演出门票。

 

Li Mei: Awesome. They are my favorite classical musicians. But how is it that you have access to great shows? You're always posting amazing photos of events on your WeChat account.

太棒了!秘密花园是我最喜欢的古典音乐家了。亚当,你怎么老是去看这么棒的演出?我看到你在朋友圈晒的照片了。

 

Adam: Did you see my photos from my visit to Xiamen University's Art College?

你是说我在厦大艺术学院看的那些演出吗?

 

Li Mei: Yeah, that was pretty cool and I love to support young artists but those kinds of events are free of charge. I'm wondering how you get great tickets at the city's top theaters for live events?

那些也很精彩,我也很乐意支持年轻的艺术家们,但这些演出都是免费的。我好奇的是,你怎么能买到厦门顶级剧场的好票,得以在现场观看演出的?

 

Adam: Well, I do a lot of research online and in the paper about upcoming events and then I make sure to book tickets as soon as they go on sale.

其实,我主要是在网上和报纸上搜罗各种演出信息,一旦开票就赶紧订票。

 

Li Mei: Which online sites do you use to find information and to purchase tickets?

网上哪里可以看到演出信息呢?

 

Adam: Both 228.com.cn and Damai.cn are good choices for purchasing tickets online. They list a ton of upcoming plays, operas, dances and concerts at all of Xiamen's main theaters. You can always find something you'd like to see.

像永乐票务和大麦网这种网上订票平台都会提供厦门各大剧院的戏剧、舞蹈、音乐会信息,你准能找到你喜欢的。

 

Li Mei: Great, I'll take a look at those sites tonight. I like dances and dramas, anything with passion and intensity.

太好了!我今晚就上网浏览。我最喜欢像舞蹈和戏剧这种富有激情的演出了。

 

Adam: Then you'd love Carmen, Swan Lake and La Traviata, three classical Western operas with upcoming performances in Xiamen. Tickets with a range of prices are on sale right now.

那你肯定会喜欢《卡门》、《天鹅湖》、《茶花女》等即将在厦门上演的剧目,这些都已经出票了,有不同的票价可以选择。

 

Li Mei: Great, let's check them out.

太好了,我们现在就看看吧。

 

Adam: Sure, but first please take this ticket for Secret Garden. I know you're a fan and we can check it out together.

好的,但首先让我把这张《秘密花园》音乐会的票送给你,我知道你也很喜欢,我们可以一起看。

 

Li Mei: Thank you so much Adam, you are a true friend.

太谢谢你了亚当,你真是一个好朋友!
