曉琪扮英台 平胸演不來

 記者 /田瑜萍 報導

辛曉琪參加音樂舞台劇「梁祝」的演出,是她第一次演戲、第一次扮古裝,向來求好心切的她,這幾天能不開口就不開口,以保持聲音的完美;每晚入睡前,腦中就會響起戲中旋律跟場景,搞得快失眠,不過這些都不困擾她,麻煩的是,演祝英台得反串男生,不過辛曉琪胸前偉大,反串實在不像,她笑說:「這個梁山伯真的很呆,這樣都看不出來我是個女的!」

為了扮男裝要不要纏胸,辛曉琪挺猶豫;又怕一纏胸線全走樣,不纏又怕不敬業,有那「兩粒」是男生,梁山伯還不識她是女兒身,實在是名副其實的呆頭鵝。當初導演要脅她「妳不演,這齣戲就上不了舞台」,讓她獻出處女秀,沒想到辛曉琪越演越入戲,「當初導演看了我在大安森林公園張國榮追思會上的表現,很怕我又在舞台上泣不成聲唱不了歌,也怕我下戲後入戲太深回不了魂。說真的,演完後,我真得休息一段時間,才能有心情籌備新專輯。」

答應演出前,辛曉琪從未看過「梁祝」,只因媽媽跟姊姊是梁祝迷,從小聽她們哼唱,這些旋律就深植她心,兩星期前第一次看到原版「梁祝」,她哭得唏哩嘩啦:「這戲40年還那麼感動人。」這次演祝英台,全劇長2.5小時,她得唱足兩小時,為保養聲音,她盡量用筆談,而演出要換6套服裝、2組頭套,有演唱會換裝經驗的她很緊張:「演唱會有一堆人幫你換衣服,但這次要換頭套跟衣服,卻只有2分半時間,一想到就胃抽筋!」

As a perfectionist, Winnie strived to do her best in her first Musical performance.  During the few days before the performance, she tried to avoid talking as much as possible in order to rest her vocal and chose to communicate via writing.  The Musical lasts about two and a half hours and she had to sing for about 2 hours.

Every night in bed, the sounds and scenes from Musical would ring in her mind, causing her to have insomnia.  Her feminine body has given her another set troubles as she had to disguise as a man in a few scenes.  She was hesitant about binding her body for fear that it might affect her body shape adversely.  She is also nervous about having as little as two and a half minutes to change her costumes during the performance. 

She has about six sets of costumes and two sets of hairdo in all.

In the beginning, the Producer told her that he would not go ahead with the Musical if she would not take part in it.  Even though this is her first time performing in a Musical, the Director is not worried at all about her acting skills.  On the contrary, he is more worried that she will be so emotionally involved into the Musical and she will have problems adjusting back to her usual self after her performances. 

Winnie indeed admits that she will need a break after the performances to re-adjust herself before re-commencing to prepare for her new album.

As Winnie had never watched the nostalgic version of "Butterfly Lovers" by Ling Bo, she took some time to watch the DVD two weeks ago.  She was very touched by it.
