Many places where concerts are given, are multifunctional in fact,
such as playing both operas and symphonic concerts, or have speech
theatre one day and chamber_music the other.

Thus having one master value for performing arts, currently
amenity=theatre, makes more sense to me than splitting this into
two dozens of subcategories.

The latter are characterised by the theatre:genre tag, the only
flaw with the current design of genre is that I cannot assign
multiple values to the same venue.
