SIPFLS IBDP Presents World Book Day and Les Misérables

走进IB国际高中部世界读书日

苏州工业园区外国语学校IB高中世界读书日

 

The third annual World Book Day by SIPFLS IBDP offered more action and cultural variety than ever before. IB students displayed their talents in all aspects of the arts, dancing, acting, singing and playing their way through a memorable and entertaining afternoon. Principals, staff, parents and guests were treated to six performances that showcased the teamwork and dedication of the Performing Arts club and department as a whole.

2017年10月30日下午,苏州工业园区外国语学校IB高中部成功举办了第三届“世界读书日”活动。与往届相比,本届读书日活动呈现了异彩纷呈的节目并展示了兼容并包的文化。全体IB学生通过舞蹈、表演、歌唱等多种形式向学校领导、老师、家长和来宾展示了各自的艺术天赋。本次活动由IB国际高中部表演社团主导,全体IB师生通力配合,不仅体现了学生优秀的的团队合作技能,也展现了他们的无私奉献精神。

 

Hosted by Sun Young Park and Bertram Xu, the event was kicked off by an exhilarating duet on piano by Louisa Liu and Jack Liang. Four hands sounded like an entire orchestra when playing Johann Strauss Senior’s renowned Radetzsky March, truly whetting the appetite of the audience and setting the standard for the rest to come.

本届世界读书日活动由朴宣映(Gabriela)同学和徐梓皓(Bertram)同学搭档主持。活动在刘礼扬(Louisa)同学和梁嘉伟(Jack)同学带来的四手连弹钢琴曲《拉德斯基进行曲》中拉开序幕。这首欢快愉悦的钢琴曲激起了观众的兴趣,并奠定了整场活动的基调。

 

Next, Year 10 took centre stage with their adaptation of theclassic Chinese novel Water Margin (水滸傳). The traditional story was retold in a modern and humorous way, with daring fight scenes, an adrenaline-charged soundtrack and convincing acting by the small but lively cast. It was wonderful to see such a well-known tale being portrayed in a new and exciting way.

紧接着10年级的同学们给观众表演了新编版中国经典名著《水浒传》的一个片段。 这个中国经典文学故事被同学们用诙谐的方式,借力现代的背景音乐和精彩的打戏重新演绎了出来。将经典故事浓缩于片段之中,辅之以个人理解并将之搬上舞台, 这种旧瓶装新酒的呈现方式令观众耳目一新。

 

The programme then took a more mournful and romantic turn, with York Yang’s and Krystal Shen’s rendition of Thinking of You. This touching duet was followed by yet another contrasting piece, as Jack Liang once again took to the piano to demonstrate his quick and nimble finger workwith the Filippenko Toccata. He took the audience’s breath away with an energetic and charismatic performance.

随后,11年级的杨凌York同学和沈家敏Krystal同学用一首抒情的歌曲《明月几时有》又将观众从一个轻松幽默的氛围带到了一个宁静浪漫的情境。接着,梁嘉伟Jack同学凭借他娴熟的钢琴技艺弹奏了一首激情澎湃的钢琴曲,为观众呈上了一场听觉盛宴。

 

Before the final item of the afternoon, Year 11 introduced a surreal and psychedelic performance ofAlice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The audience were invited to venture down the rabbit hole with Alice and watch a dance off between the ‘red rabbits’ and ‘blue rabbits’. Choreographed by York Yang andTomo Li, it was a great chance for the team to show off their modern dance skills.

活动接近尾声时,IB舞蹈社团带领观众来到了如梦如幻的《爱丽丝漫游仙境》。观众跟随爱丽丝一起踏入兔子洞,开启了华丽的冒险之旅,并且欣赏了一场“红兔子”与“蓝兔子”之间的斗舞比赛。值得一提的是,本场舞台剧所有的舞蹈动作都由杨凌York同学和李园亭Tomo同学设计编排,这彰显了他们团队娴熟的现代舞蹈技能。

 

For the World Book Day grand finale, the whole department joined forces to present Victor Hugo’s LesMisérables. Transporting the audience back to revolutionary France, the principals of liberté, égalité, and fraternitéwere framed by the touching love story of Cosette and Marius. James Liu and Vivian Yang not only directed the production, but also took on the central roles of Jean Valjean and Javert respectively with incredible passion and devotion. The play was driven by live music from the IB Band, who accompanied the performers and lifted the whole performance to new heights. Taking on such an epic tale, popularized by the recent film adaptation of the musical, was an incredibly ambitious task, but the students came together and did themselves proud hosting a magnificent event. Next year, it will be the turn of the current Year 10s to continue to make World Book Day bigger and better than before!

最后,本届世界读书日活动的压轴戏是维克多•雨果的《悲惨世界》。本场音乐剧由IB全体师生通力合作、共同完成。演员精湛的表演将观众带回到法国大革命时期,让其在珂赛特和马吕斯感人的爱情故事中感悟到了自由平等博爱的革命精神。11年级学生刘洺君James同学和杨嘉怡Vivian同学在舞台上展现了令人折服的热情和奉献精神。他们不仅导演了这场舞台剧,还分别担当了两位男主角冉•阿让和沙威。这场舞台剧由IB乐队现场伴奏,乐队成员与表演者的配合将整场演出带到了一个新的高度。尝试长篇史诗巨著,加之以电影手法改编音乐剧这样的流行元素,本身是一件极具挑战性的任务。但是同学们团结协作,共同举办了这场值得骄傲的盛大活动。明年的世界读书日将是现任10年级的主场,我们期待他们再接再厉,再创新高!
