The Queen(婚前)

來到維也納才發現一位十九世紀歐洲公認最美的皇室成員,名氣及美貌經常與二十世紀的戴安娜王妃(Diana,Princess of Wales)相提並論,愛情、婚姻,甚至私生活皆是世人矚目的焦點,她是受人民愛戴的一代美人奧地利皇后-巴伐利亞公主伊莉莎白(Elisabeth of Bavaria)。回港後偶然看了摯友送贈的戲票贈券之【英女皇】(The Queen)這套奧斯卡電影,想起已故的戴安娜王妃,加上特別鍾情維也納,引發對這位奧地利伊莉莎白皇后的興趣,努力搜尋不同版本的歷史文獻和坊間相傳的野史,英文、中文,甚至德文的記載,也都仔細翻閱過,比求學時期還要勤力,終於整理出這位傳奇名女人的概述與分析:

奧地利依莉莎白皇后(Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie),茜茜公主(Sisi)


茜茜公主的父親是巴伐利亞維特爾斯巴赫王朝(House of Wittelsbach)的一個旁支的公爵,並非重要人物,因此在宮廷並沒有特別職務。母親是他的表妹,是巴伐利亞國王馬克西米利安一世.約瑟夫(Maximilian I.Joseph)的第八女兒。父母親稱得上是俊男美女,但婚姻生活卻不是很融洽。母親沒有理解父親的個性,他對她的上流貴族活動並不感興趣,只喜歡彈琴、寫詩、旅行、騎馬、游泳,為了與學者多作哲學的交流,經常流連酒吧,很少照顧子女,但偶爾也會帶茜茜去教堂,或自己彈琴,讓茜茜跳舞,贏得周遭觀眾的賞錢,茜茜也在此時學會了巴伐利亞的方言。而母親則致力為子女尋好歸宿,很會作媒,知道姐姐蘇菲王妃(Princess Sophie of Bavaria)在維也納想為兒子奧地利皇帝法蘭茲.約瑟夫一世(Franz Joseph I)找一個符合蘇菲自己要求的皇后,選了十八歲美麗端莊的茜茜的姐姐海倫,悉心栽培她成為皇后。

於是母親安排姐姐赴奧地利避暑聖地巴德伊舍(Bad Ischl)與皇帝相親,茜茜公主也一起同行。但意料之外是法蘭茲竟對天真活潑、美麗善良的茜茜一見鍾情。兩人經過數天時間相處後,發現雙方均熱愛大自然,茜茜答應了表哥皇帝的求婚,縱使她暗示過怎能對一國之君說「不」。蘇菲王妃雖然有些驚訝,但選中的仍然是維特爾斯巴赫王朝的公主,總算高興。她批准了將伊舍的夏宮改建成一個“E”字形作為結婚禮物,是為凱撒別墅(Kaiservilla)。

Music, Movie, Musicals and Me

Music and theatre have had a close relationship. Theatre can associate with movie or musical theatre (musicals) and I love both of them. I sing theme songs in some Asian movies, such as“When I Dream” (theme from “Dragon Squad”). It easily recalls people not only from scenes of the movie, but also from memory. I love theme music from movies as well as songs from Musicals, especially Broadway. I remember I have fallen in love with Broadway since I was 12. Musical films characteristically contain elements reminiscent of theatre; performers often sing and dance as if there is a live audience watching. Some musical films were adapted for the stage after their great success, such as “The Wizard of Oz” and“Fame”, while successful musicals also definitely received movie adaptations, i.e. stage-to-film adaptations, such as“Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita”. We can share our moments after all these years by passing through “Over the Rainbow”, “Out Here On My Own”, “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”, “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “You Must Love Me” ……

“Moon River” (theme from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”) has to be selected in my new album "Theatre" although it has been covered by hundreds of artists all over the world. I sing it each time, it seems like a live performance accompanied by the pianist just in front of the audience.

“The Way We Were” (theme from “The Way We Were”) must be selected because it was the song of one of my favorite singers that influences me most, Barbra Streisand, and I won the singing contest with it!

“For All We Know” (theme from “Lovers and OtherStrangers”) was selected, of course, in tribute to my forever idol, the Carpenters.

WORDS from Astor :

I hope all of you would like the presentation of my albums.
Everlasting love dedicated to SUPERSTAR...
My dearest family,
Mom and Dad,
All the one I love,
Teachers and tutors, who have enlightened me,
All singers and writers of the original songs, especially Karen and Richard Carpenter.
All musicians,
All my fans and friends.
Thanks GOD.
