A Migrant’s Tragic Journey to Europe. It’s Not on the News, It’s Opera.

船民哀歌 搬上歌劇舞台

Off the coast of Sicily, a rickety boat of migrants is in distress. Tossed by waves and drenched, women and children scream as a voice barks, “Jump and swim!” They do, but — as history shows — not everyone will make it.

在西西里島海岸外,一艘搖搖欲墜的移民船陷入了困境。船隻在海浪中載浮載沉,全身濕透的婦孺們尖叫著,有個聲音說道:「跳船游泳吧!」他們照做了,但一如歷史所呈現的,並非每個人都能活下來。

This is the tragically familiar journey that has been made across the Mediterranean by countless migrants fleeing war and famine in recent times. But instead of transpiring in the sea between Italy and Libya, this scene was being enacted on the stage of the Teatro Massimo, an opera house in the Sicilian capital, Palermo.

這是近來無數穿越地中海逃離戰爭與飢荒的移民,悲慘而又熟悉的一段旅程,但這一幕不是在義大利跟利比亞之間的海上發生,而是在西西里島首府巴勒莫的馬西莫劇院舞台上演出。

Co-produced by the theater and by the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples, “Winter Journey,” which had its world premiere in Palermo earlier this month, tells the story of desperate migration from troubled, war-torn countries to Europe.

由該劇院及那不勒斯聖卡洛劇院聯合製作的《冬季之旅》,本月稍早在巴勒莫全球首演,冷淡地講述從陷入困境、飽受戰爭蹂躪的國家遷徙至歐洲的故事。

“It is a journey toward a country where they will find hostility, a cold welcome or perhaps no welcome at all, to a place where there is a winter of the soul,” said Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi, who wrote the score of the opera to a libretto by Irish novelist Colm Toibin. “It is a journey to a hostile world,” Einaudi said, “in which your soul can die.”

義大利鋼琴家兼作曲家魯多維科.艾諾第說:「這是通往某個國家的一趟旅程,到了那兒他們會發現敵意,冷淡的歡迎,或是根本不歡迎,那兒存在著靈魂的冬季。」他為愛爾蘭小說家科姆·托賓的劇本譜寫了歌劇的音樂。艾諾第說:「這是一個通往具有敵意的世界的旅程,你的靈魂可能在那裡死去。」

The story is told from the perspective of three characters: a man from an unnamed country moving from hardship to hardship as he seeks a better life in Europe, and the woman and child he has left behind. The choir serves as a Greek chorus, while a politician (a speaking role) intervenes intermittently with refrains that will be familiar to many European ears: “The boat cannot dock at our port,” “Why should we deal with this problem?” and, “We do not want strangers on our streets.”

而故事是從三個人物的角度講述:一個來自未指名的國家、歷經一段段艱辛來到歐洲尋求更好生活的男子,以及他丟下的女人和孩子。合唱團充當希臘旁白歌隊,而一位政治人物(一個只講話的角色)則斷斷續續使用許多歐洲人耳熟能詳的話插嘴說「船不能停靠在我們的港口」、「我們為什麼要處理這個問題?」及「我們不想讓異鄉人出現在我們的街道上」。

Toibin said in a telephone interview that the work was “a simple story, almost a folk tale,” in which the main characters “sing their own stories,” focusing on the personal to “stir emotions.” But “Winter Journey” is not a simple call for open borders, he said. “Even though it is clear where my sympathies lie, I am alert to the complexity of the argument, and that has to be registered.”

托賓接受電話訪問時說,這部作品是「一個簡單的故事,接近於民間故事」,當中主要角色「唱著自己的故事」,專注於個人來「激起情緒」,但他表示《冬季之旅》並不是個要求開放邊界的單純呼籲。「儘管我同情誰不言可喻,但我也深知這個論題的複雜性,這一點必須表明。」

The project was hatched in late 2017, when the theater asked Einaudi and Palermo-born film and stage director Roberto Andò to come up with an opera about migration.

此劇的策劃始於2017年底,當時劇院要求伊諾第跟巴勒莫出生的電影暨舞台導演羅貝托.安度一起創作一部關於移民的歌劇。

In an interview, Andò described the work as a eulogy, of sorts, for “the Europe that was and isn’t anymore. A world that we hoped had more strength and instead risks faltering.”

安度受訪時表示,這部作品或可視為一首輓歌,用以悼念「曾經存在,卻已不復存在的歐洲。一個我們希望更堅實有力,卻有衰微之虞的世界」。
