Topic card

Talk about a musical event you have enjoyed attending

Sample response

A musical event I enjoyed attending was an opera. It was a presentation of La Boheme and it took place at the Sydney Opera House. There are several reasons why I enjoyed the event. First of all, it was the very first opera I watched in my life. I went to Australia as part of my student exchange project and got a chance to see my sister Aditi who lives there. During this visit I also met some of her friends. They were all very nice people. We went together to watch the opera. I was quite excited about getting an opportunity to visit the Sydney Opera House. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed their company. It was great fun going to a new place with people I felt comfortable with.

The music was great, but that was not the only reason I enjoyed the event. I absolutely loved the building and its surroundings. It is located in a beautiful place. The round roofs are an architectural marvel. They look like waves. The best thing about the building is the acoustics. It is incredible.

Watching the opera was a magical experience. I enjoyed it so much. It was a very special moment for me to watch an opera on the stage for the first time. Those memories will stay with me for a long time.
