Wedding Memories《女兒紅》, a master repertoire by the Ping-Fong Acting Troupe 屏風表演班 will be staged from October 6-19 at the National Theater 國家戲劇院 (No. 21-1 Chung Shan South Rd. 台北市中山南路22-1號 Tel: (02) 3393-9999) in celebration of the troupe’s 20th anniversary. In this play, Director Kuo-Shiu Lee pays tribute to his mother by using flashbacks. The audience is led along the journey of the Lee family’s relocation and settlement. “Wedding Memories” is filled with Lee’s memories and apologies to his mother. Lee also portrays various images of other mothers. Through the comparisons, Lee hopes the audience will be more impressed by the faultlessness of his mother. “Wedding Memories” is, not only a play about the history of Lee’s family, but also a means for the audience to witness the times when Lee’s family tried determinedly to rebuild their home. The Ping-Fong Acting Troupe is not afraid of reruns because people keep coming back for more. Tickets, priced from NT$500 to NT$2500, are available through the NTCH ticketing system.
Jessye Norman 潔西諾曼 will hold a concert on October 12, 7:30 p.m. at the National Concert Hall 國家音樂廳 (No. 21-1 Chungshan South Rd., Taipei 台北市中山南路21-1號; Tel: (02) 3393-9999). Norman made her operatic debut in a 1969 production of Tannhaeuser at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, a now legendary series of performances that placed the music world at the young American's feet. Norman was showered with invitations for operas and recitals, and she soon conquered stages from Lincoln Center to Covent Garden, Carnegie Hall to the Musikverein, from La Scala to the Paris Opera and the Vienna State Opera, from Tokyo to San Francisco, Houston and Boston, from Granada to Graz and from Salzburg to Hong Kong. She has been equally at home in American spirituals, French chansons or German Lieder, and is one the highest paid performers in classical music. She has conquered centuries of musical styles, bringing to life not only Purcell's Dido but the Dido of Berlioz, Beethoven's Leonore and also Bizet's Carmen. The range of Norman's musical reach has been and continues to be breathtaking. No matter what the language, she makes every word matter, every note tell. Tickets for the concert range from NT$2,000 to NT$12,000 and are available through the NTCH ticket system.
