"Jingju Magic" refers to not only the magic in the plot, but also the captivating ambience on the stage created by actors with their long years of practice and artistic attainment.

戲曲以人為本,演員彷彿化身劇場魔法師,以身體和聲音創造出劇場幻覺和魔力,讓《魔幻京劇》的魔幻之處不僅體現在劇情上,更意指京劇演員以一身功夫創造出舞臺上的奇幻魔力。

About the Show

World-renowned GuoGuang Opera Company is set to premiere Jingju Magic - Love & Bewilderment in Malaysia with two double bills featuring “Zhuangzi Tests His Wife”, “Lu Wenlong”, “The Death of Zhou Yu” and “Guiying’s Accusation of Wang Kuei at the Temple” at klpac's Pentas 1 in July 2024.

To celebrate their return to KL after nine years, these special excerpts showcase the many magical qualities of Jingju (Peking opera) from its enchanting story based on literary classic like the Romance of the Three Kingdoms to the spellbinding techniques of its performers executing martial arts combat scenes or complex skills such as water sleeves and ghostly movements.

As Taiwan’s premier Peking opera troupe, GuoGuang Opera Company has wowed audiences around the globe for almost three decades. Known for their modern sensibilities and interpretation while adhering to traditional opera conventions, the troupe offers a unique gateway for today’s audiences to experience age-old culture and traditions. 
 
Performed in Mandarin with English & Mandarin surtitles by an impressive cast of 29 actors and musicians, their 3-day KL performance is made possible by the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office in Malaysia, klpac and National Center for Traditional Arts (Taiwan) with the support of the Ministry of Culture (Taiwan), Advantech Foundation and Pixel World.

暌違9年,台灣國光劇團即將於2024年7月12日至14日再度造訪吉隆坡,帶來三場《魔幻京劇 - 情的困惑》。這也是國光劇團首次在吉隆坡表演藝術中心演出,為馬來西亞觀眾帶來四齣經典京劇折子戲。

自1995年創團以來,國光劇團深耕傳統戲曲,並與時俱進,以當代視角重新詮釋經典好戲,打造出國光獨特的傳統戲曲新美學,也在國際舞臺大放異彩。國光也致力栽培年輕演員,讓他們擔任要角,展現技藝的傳承。戲曲以人為本,演員彷彿化身劇場魔法師,以身體和聲音創造出劇場幻覺和魔力,讓《魔幻京劇》的魔幻之處不僅體現在劇情上,更意指京劇演員以一身功夫創造出舞臺上的奇幻魔力。

每場《魔幻京劇》都由兩齣折子戲組成,節目A包括《試妻劈棺》與《雙槍陸文龍》,由莊子一角若有似無地連結,愛情、親情、忠義間的重大抉擇,都在一念之間,是非又如何評斷? 引導觀眾以當代視角觀看忠孝、人性的可嘆與可看之處。

節目B則包括衍生自經典傳統文學《三國演義》中的《周瑜歸天》,觀衆可欣賞到武生演員高難度動作與身段。國光在《周瑜歸天》中增加周瑜與小喬互動的段落,帶給觀眾另一層由女性角度面對男性徵戰世界的視角,並由此銜接下一齣《打神告廟》,由已至陰間的焦桂英與為情所困的小喬相遇,帶出王魁負桂英的整個故事脈絡,同時也展現了演員精湛的鬼步等身法,將氛圍拉滿,讓觀眾更能沉浸其中,感同身受,進到角色的心靈深處。

《魔幻京劇》由國光29位演員和樂師透過魔幻劇情和現場音樂的加持,而且刻意挑選高難度劇碼,精彩淋漓,魔幻加乘。無論您是京劇初體驗還是專業老戲迷,文武兼呈的《魔幻京劇》,值得您細細品味。

本節目由吉隆坡表演藝術中心、駐馬來西亞台北經濟文化辦事處及台灣國立傳統藝術中心聯手呈獻,台灣文化部、研華文教基金會及Pixel World支持,以中文演出,附中英字幕。
