The Primary Study on the “Drama Musical” of Michael Kunze and Sylvester Levay: A Case Study of the Music and Text in Elizabeth and Mozart!
|Abstract:||相對於百老匯與西區音樂劇創作的商業傾向，歐陸音樂劇尤其是德語音樂劇的創作展現了其非常強烈的經典化意願和趨向，其中最具代表性的當屬米歇爾．昆策（Michael Kunze）及西爾維斯特．萊維（Sylvester Levay）的一系列人物傳記劇。德語音樂劇以嚴肅而詭譎、衝突強烈卻浪漫入骨的風格，在世界舞台上獨樹一幟，昆策與萊維創作的一系列人物傳記劇傑作可謂功不可沒。
於理查．羅傑斯（Richard Rodgers）和奥斯卡．漢默斯坦二世（Oscar Hammerstein II）之後，音樂劇逐漸從「音樂本位」移至「戲劇本位」，而在這個階段中，昆策與萊維是很重要的推動者和發展者。他們在其創作中形成了音樂劇經典化的三個體現：間離性、命運感、整體觀。
Compared with the commercial tendency of Broadway and West End musicals, the creation of continental musicals, especially German musicals, shows a very strong desire and tendency of canonization. The most representative one is a series of biographical plays by Michael Kunze and Sylvester Levay. German musicals stand out on the world stage for their serious, whimsical, conflicted but romantic styles, thanks largely to a series of biographical masterpieces by Kunze and Levay. Elizabeth and Mozart! are the most famous works of Kunze and Levay. Their artistic characteristics can also represent the author's own concepts of dramas. The alienation and sense of destiny of Elizabeth and Mozart! are the prominent characteristics, which enhance the seriousness and artistry of musicals in terms of form and content. When the concept of musicals that "music is king" was very popular then, Kunze put forward that "drama is king", believing that drama was the most important part in musicals. This point of view has shown important implications for us. After Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, musicals gradually developed from the "music-based" to the "theatrical-based" stage. During this period, Kunze and Levay were significant promoters and developers. They have formed three embodiment of the classicalization of musicals through their works: alienation, sense of destiny and the holistic view. For the staff of Chinese musicals, there are few studies on Kunze and Levay, which reflects the insufficient attention and research on musicals in minority languages. Therefore, to a large extent, it causes the bottleneck in the development of the research on the creation of Chinese musicals. The studies on the works of Kunze and Levay can give us broader vision and greater imagination, and give us more inspiration and enlightenment on creation.
