Review TOSCA.

I finally bought the book I really wanted for at least two years.
That was “TOSCA" from Black Dog Opera Libray with EMI 2CDs.
I thinked that I already have its DVD, italian libertti (BONACCI EDITORE), etc.
Now I want to pick up some paragraph form the libertti of the one of my favorite opera!!!

I think there’s no need to introduce the plot of it.
People who is interested on it would find those kind of info. by themself, I believe.

Anyway, the character of Tosca is Jealous, Love, Passion, and Revenge.
This is a totally different type from me. Maybe that’s why I love this character.

I know most of the people who is familiar with this Opera, loving in her famous aria, “Vissi d’Arte".
But that isn’t the part why I love in this opera at all. The aria is really touching and impactive.
Still, it’s not the biggest factor why I love this opera.

There are some scenes of it, which I really love, following.
(With my Chinese translation and the accounts from BONACCI EDITORE one. No English translation, Sorry.)

1.

基本背景:

女主角Tosca的情人Mario因為收留了一個反政府朋友被發現,被Scarpia逮到機會。
他想要Tosca很久了,於是藉機想辦法讓Mario被捕並判死刑,並要脅Tosca如果想救Mario一命,必須成為他的人。

The scene she was forced to give herself up to the evil, selfish authority symbol Scarpia.
She pretended obeying him, but finally killed him without a moment’s hesitation.

Scarpia–Si adempia il voler vostro. 你的願望將全數實現。

Tosca–La più breve! 距離最短的!

Scarpia–Civitavecchia? 其維塔法基亞?(位於羅馬四十公里外的海港,Tosca計畫要從那裡和Mario離開。)

Tosca–Sì. 是的。

Scarpia–Tosca, finalmente mia! Maledetta. 托斯卡,終於是我的了!你這小壞蛋。

Tosca–Questo è il bacio di Tosca! 這是托斯卡的吻!(刺他一刀)

Scarpia–Aiuto…muoio! Soccorso! Muoio! 救命…我要死了!救命!我要死了!

Tosca–Ti soffoca il sangue? Eucciso da una donna! M’hai assai torturata? Odi tu ancora? Parla! Guardami! Son Tosca! O Scarpia!
被你自己的血嗆到了嗎? 被一個女人殺死!你折磨夠我了嗎?你還聽得見嗎?說啊!看著我!我就是托斯卡!喔!斯卡皮亞!

Scarpia–Soccorso! Aiuto! 救命!救命!

Tosca–Ti soffoca il sangue? Muori dannato! Muori! Muori! Muori! 被你自己的血嗆到了嗎?死吧!可憎的傢伙!死吧!死吧!死吧!

È morto! Or gli perdono! E avanti a lui tremava tutta Roma! 他死了!現在我為你道歉!整個羅馬被他搞得人心惶惶!

這一段是斯卡皮亞本來答應過托斯卡,礙於名義,依然要將瑪莉歐處死,但子彈會換成空包彈。
托斯卡抵達行刑處,等待它結束,好和瑪莉歐一起逃離羅馬。

Tosca–Com’è l’attesa! Preché indugiano ancor? Già sorge il sole; perché indugiano ancora? È una commedia, lo so, ma questa angoscia eterna pare.
還要等多久啊!為什麼他們還遲遲未開始?太陽應該早就升起了啊。為什麼他們還遲遲未開始?這只是齣鬧劇,我知道,但這焦慮感像是永遠不會結束。

Ecco! Apprestano l’armi! Com’è bello il mio Mario!
在那裡!他們瞄準他了!我的瑪莉歐真帥啊!

Là! Muori! Ecco un artista!
那裡!死吧!喔~真是個演員!

O Mario, non ti muovere…
喔,瑪莉歐,你還先別動…
S’avviano, taci! Vanno, scendono.
他們走了。別動!他們走了,下去了。

Ancora non ti muovere…
你還先別動…

(托斯卡接著趕過去瑪莉歐身邊)

Presto! Su, Mario! Mario! Su! Presto! Andiam! Su! Su!
快點起來!瑪莉歐!瑪莉歐!起來!快點!快過來啊!快!快!

Mario! Mario!
瑪莉歐!瑪莉歐!

Morto! Morto!
死了!死了!

O Mario, morto? Tu? Così? Finire così? Così! ecc.
喔,瑪莉歐,死了?你?就這樣?就這樣死了?就這樣…

Voci Confuse–Scarpia? Pugnalato! La donna è Tosca! Che non sfugga!
疑惑的聲音們–斯卡比亞被刺殺了!殺他的就是那女人,托斯卡!別讓他逃了!

Scriarrone–È lei! 她在那裡!

Spoletta–Ah, Tosca, pagherai ben cara la sua vita! 啊!托斯卡!妳將為妳的行為付出生命代價!

(企圖抓住她。)

Tosca–Colla mia! 讓我自己來吧!(托斯卡奮力推開Spoletta,接著如此回答!)

(Spoletta被震懾住了,Tosca接著逃到著名的Castel Sant’Angelo上面的橋緣邊)

O scarpia, avanti a Dio!

喔!斯卡皮亞,我們地獄見!(原文意思是 before God!意思是「讓我們在神的審判前見」)

 

接著從橋上墜下

 

 

說說我最喜歡的台詞,那就是

Ti soffoca il sangue? — Is your blood chocking you?

還有

O scarpia, avanti a Dio! — Oh, Scarpia. Before God!

 

 


 

話說我真的很無聊地又在重看You’ve got mail.

裡面太多台詞都太經典了www

 Kathleen Kelly: I thought all that Fox stuff was so charming. F-O-X.

 Joe Fox: Well, I didn’t *lie* about it.

 Kathleen Kelly: “Joe"? “Just call me Joe"? As if you were one of those stupid 22-year
old girls with no last name? “Hi, I’m Kimberly!" “Hi, I’m Janice!" Don’t
they know you’re supposed to have a last name? It’s like they’re an
entire generation of cocktail waitresses.

該控告Kelly歧視22歲女生嗎?www
