梁祝太淒美 辛曉琪落淚

 記者 潘罡/報導

台灣原創音樂劇「梁祝」即將上演,這兩天進入了緊鑼密鼓的排演階段,包括歌手辛曉琪、王柏森等人,在國家交響樂團助理指揮張佳韻指揮下,逐句逐字地把作曲家鍾耀光以及作詞者楊忠衡的音符和歌詞,調和成旋律,聽著時或澎湃時或纏綿的歌曲,不少參與排練的人是以「雞皮疙瘩」來形容自己的感受,而辛曉琪則是因過於入戲而頻頻落淚。

「梁祝」從籌備到上演,時程非常緊迫,因此幾乎所有人員都是咬緊牙關趕工,很多細節也是隨時調整修正。例如,作曲家鍾耀光寫慣了嚴肅的管絃樂,如今為流行歌手作曲,有時會忽略了某些唱法不是流行歌手所能勝任。但鍾耀光所擁有的紮實管絃功力,讓「梁祝」的音樂有了品質保證。

例如最後祝英台投墳的一幕,鍾耀光動用了定音鼓、大鼓、太鼓以及傳統和現代套鼓,震天動地的打擊樂,襯托出這一幕的悲壯與戲劇高潮,搭配漢唐樂府副團長蕭賀文的場面調度,讓祝英台身穿全身白色素服,身旁抬轎迎親的媒婆和轎夫則穿著大紅服裝,強烈的視覺對比,隨著打擊樂不斷變換動作,並呼應節奏效果,所有與排練的演員都為之動容。製作人楊忠衡表示,他不敢說「梁祝」最後有多好多棒,但所有的一切都讓他非常感動。「梁祝」將於11日起在台北國家係劇院演出多場。洽詢電話:(02)29253960。

As the big day for "Butterfly Lovers" draws near, all the cast members and the entire Orchestra come together to rehearse for all the songs in the Musical. 

Those present during these practice sessions commented that the entire Musical is very touching and Winnie, the female lead, herself frequently broke down in tears during the practices.

Due to the tight schedule, the Director made many impromptu changes in order to make the Musical more perfect.

Mel Yang, the producer, expresses that although he wouldn't say that the performances will ultimately be perfect, he will however not hesitate to say that it will be a very moving one.
