[MUSIC] 經典百老匯 -- 西城故事 -- Tonight



這一系列的百老匯音樂介紹就在今天的《西城故事》先劃下一個句點。下星期我再來想想一些不同的音樂跟大家分享。

《西城故事》(West Side Story)這部音樂劇改編自莎士比亞的名著《羅密歐與朱麗葉》。描寫兩位相互愛戀, 卻身處敵對團體的少男少女如何跨出兩者間的鴻溝, 卻又不幸失敗的故事。而改編後不同的地方是結合了當時美國移民族群的背景, 及戰後社會快速成長但隱藏在背後的一些問題, 種族歧視、青少年犯罪、暴力和文化代溝。

1957 年第一次搬上舞台, 就連續演出了 732 場, 獲獎連連, 後來也拍成了電影。這首「Tonight」出現在第一幕的中間, 二個情人唱出心中只有彼此的濃濃愛意。





參考歌詞

MARIA
Only you, you're the only thing I'll see forever
In my eyes in my words and in everything I do
Nothing else but you
Ever

TONY
And there's nothing for me but Maria
Every sight that I see is Maria

MARIA
Tony, Tony

TONY
Always you, every thought I'll ever know
Everywhere I go you'll be

TONY & MARIA
All the world is only you and me

MARIA
Tonight, tonight
It all began tonight
I saw you and the world went away
Tonight, tonight
There's only you tonight
What you are, what you do, what you say

TONY
Today, all day I had the feeling
A miracle would happen
I know now I was right

TONY & MARIA
For here you are
And what was just a world is a star
Tonight
Tonight, tonight
The world is full of light
With suns and moons all over the place
Tonight, tonight
The world is wild and bright
Going mad
Shooting sparks into space
Today, the world was just an address
A place for me to live in
No better than all right
But here you are
And what was just a world is a star
Tonight
Good night, good night
Sleep well and when you dream
Dream of me
Tonight
