IB World Book Day --- An Adapted Vision of Pride and Prejudice

IB高中部世界读书日活动 ---- 《傲慢与偏见》校园版

 

On the afternoon of Wednesday, 31st October the IB department held their fourth World Book Day celebration, hosted in style by Effielnora Chau and Kriss Kang. Inviting principals, teachers, parents and staff, all came together in the auditorium to enjoy the afternoon’s performances inspired by notable works of literature. Before taking their seats, the audience was treated to a warm welcoming reception where they could read the WBD programme and enjoy freshly baked cookies, courtesy of the IB’s excellent cooking club.  

1031日星期三下午,IB部门举行了第四届世界图书日庆祝活动,活动由周俊屹和姜建宇主持。校长、老师、家长和工作人员齐聚一堂,欣赏了一场精彩的表演,这些表演的灵感均出自著名文学作品。落座之前,观众就已经受到了同学们的热烈欢迎,他们不仅可以预先阅读WBD节目介绍单,还可以享受新鲜出炉的小饼干,这些美味的饼干由IB烹饪俱乐部倾情提供。

 

The main event of the day was the IB student-led play adaptation of Jane Austen’s well-known love story, Pride and Prejudice. Year 11 did an excellent job of reimagining the story, placing it in a modern school setting which dealt with the everyday trials and tribulations of students (something that they are very familiar with!). Anthony Bolton (narrator), Sandra Sun (Elisabeth), Lily Ji (Jane), Evan Fan (Bingley) and Jerry Yuanshan(Darcy) took the lead roles and did an excellent job bringing the creative rewriting of the story to life. The props, makeup, costumes, programme designers, lightening, curtains, ushers, sound and microphone teams all worked together with a dedicated cast to create a performance to remember.

当天活动最主要的节目是戏剧表演《傲慢与偏见》,是由IB学生们从简奥斯汀著名爱情小说改编而来。在重新构想故事方面,11年级的学生表现出色,他们将故事重置于现代化的学校场景中,处理的是学生日常遇见的考验和磨难(他们非常熟悉的东西!)。安东尼(叙述者),孙童言(伊丽莎白),纪燕婷(简),范易彬(彬格利先生)和远山知博(达西先生)担任主角并且表现出色,共同将故事的创意变为现实。道具、化妆、服装、程序设计师、灯光、窗帘、引导员、音效和麦克风团队都与演员们紧密合作,呈现出一场令人难忘的表演。

 

 

During the interval, Jack Liang gave a wonderful piano recital, performing two pieces from the 2005 film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice: Dawn and Georgiana by Dario Marianelli. The IB Dance club also displayed their talent with a dance called寄明月or “Scented Moon”, merging Eastern and Western styles. Adding to the afternoon’s excitement, students in the IB department were encouraged to dress up as their favourite literary character and a competition was held for the best-dressed students. Here, the audience was given the opportunity to vote for their favourite costume, with copies of Pride and Prejudice awarded to the top three students.

在此期间,梁嘉伟给观众带来一出精彩的钢琴演奏,分别是Dario MarianelliDawnGeorgiana,这两支曲目均来自2005年改编的电影《傲慢与偏见》。与此同时,IB舞蹈俱乐部还展示了一场优美的舞蹈表演,名为寄明月或“香味月亮”,舞蹈巧妙融合了东西方风格。更加令人兴奋的是,IB学生被鼓励走到台前,装扮成他们最喜欢的文学人物形象,还进行了一场最佳着装竞赛,现场观众有机会投票选出自己喜欢的服装。最后,小说《傲慢与偏见》作为奖品颁发给了获得前三名的学生。

 

 

As the final curtain calls came to a close, it was clear from the audience’s enthusiastic applause that all the performances had been a success. Each year, the WBD is getting bigger and better and we look forward to see what Year 10 will bring to the event next year!

随着最终的谢幕,演出也接近尾声,观众掌声四起,热烈庆祝演出成功。IB“世界读书日”活动一年比一年更精彩,让我们共同期待来年将由10年级带来的演出!
