Teochew Opera: The Trial at Kaifeng

潮艺馆将在6月份的最后一个周日呈现《闹开封》作为每月的潮州之夜演出。《闹开封》乃是潮剧的经典剧目,由金玉楼春潮州木偶剧团班底现场演奏。当天更备有中英文字幕以方便观众了解剧情。

本次有幸邀约到新加坡万能旦角陈巧鸾和著名女老生陈巧莲领衔主演,姐妹同台飙戏。陈氏姐妹来自新加坡百年老剧团(新荣和兴潮剧团)的主要演员。陈巧莲唱腔醇厚,演技纯熟自然老练,唱腔都被误以为是男生。陈巧鸾则被大众称为“戏布袋”,“九条喉”,可同时演唱不同的角色。

巡天侯之子李天福,仗权势强抢民妇。开封府尹王佐秉公断案,将李天福拘禁问罪。李母邢氏(诰命夫人)闻讯赶至公堂,胁逼王佐翻案。王佐蔑视权势,刚正不阿。李天福恃势横行,踢死民妇之父。李邢氏指使家奴李虎刀刺证人未遂,误杀李天福,继而反诬王佐纵犯行凶,气焰逼人。王佐忍无可忍,愤而封衙门,摘乌纱、锁诰命,同上金銮。

演员列表:
王佐(陈巧莲)
诰命夫人(陈巧鸾)
李天福(林云濠)

As part of LFSS and our monthly Teochew Cultural Night, Teochew Puppet and Opera House is proud to present “The Trial at Kaihong” on 26 June (Sunday). “The Trial at Kaihong” is another classic of Teochew opera. The performance comes with live musical accompaniment, provided by Kim Giak Low Choon Puppet Opera Troupe. There will be also Chinese and English subtitles, to facilitate understanding for non-Teochew speakers.

We are honoured to invite famous opera performing sisters Tan Khar Luang and Tan Kah Noi from Singapore to star in this performance. The two sisters, one adept at ‘dan’ (lady ) roles and the other at ‘mo’ (old man) roles, share the stage. Before their retirement, the Tan sisters were the star acts of the prestigious century-old Teochew opera troupe Sin Yong Hua Heng in Singapore.

Mdm Khar Luang is a powerful performer, and she is effortlessly skilled at her craft – her performing voice exuding masculinity; while Mdm. Kah Noi has been dubbed the “Human Cornucopia” and “Nine Voices” in allusion to her versatility and ability to disappear into any role.

This electrifying performance is not to be missed! For queries and/or booking, please call us at 04-2620377 / 012-4853377,e-mail us at teochewoperahouse@gmail.com, or simply send us a message on Facebook!

“The Trial at Kaifeng” synopsis:

Li Tianfu, son of a senior magistrate, abuses his power to marry a commoner woman against her will. The presiding magistrate Wang Zuo conducts the case impartially, taken into custody and tried. However, upon hearing the news, the accused’s mother, Lady Li, rushes to force Wang Zuo to overturn his conviction of her son. Wang, being am upright magistrate, refuses.

Tianfu, in a fit of rage, kicks the aggrieved woman’s father to death. Lady Li orders a household servant to murder a witness, but accidentally causes her own son’s death instead. She then accuses Wang Zuo of killing her son.

Exasperated and backed into a corner, Wang Zuo resigns his magistracy, claps Lady Li in chains, and with her in tow goes to petition the Emperor.
