​民國時代一段難再回眸的京劇愛情

一位獨立而孤傲的女子,"梨園冬皇”孟小冬

追尋生命共鳴的藝術之路

作品介紹

「什麼聲音?槍響?鞭炮?人聲嘈雜?」瀕死前彌留的孟小冬,回顧她的一生,追尋聲音的一生。

14歲的她走進北京,尋找余派的聲音。卻意外與梅先生同台。(請問可以寫梅蘭芳嗎?)離開梅先生的她,「找不著共鳴了」,卻遇到上海灘蛟龍杜月笙。「從他的眼睛裡,我看見了自己」

劇評

聽魏海敏在生旦兩行之間、在大嗓和小嗓之間,一刻不停地來回倒騰,一板不落,如行雲流水,蕩氣迴腸。

—孫玫‧台北《聯合報》‧2010年4月

該劇表達了編導對京劇改革的多方面思考,突出京劇的抒情功能。它沒有激烈的矛盾衝突,卻能夠絲絲入扣,引人入勝。
