内容提要:

美国音乐剧最早起源于从欧洲传入的轻歌剧。十九世纪的音乐剧并没有完整的脚本,而是由剧作家根据某个明星的特点为其写作歌曲和表演内容。这种以演唱为主要表演手段的剧目,剧情往往具有固定套路,总是有个皆大欢喜的结局。1920年代公主剧院上演了以机智对话、令人欣喜的各种意外、迷人音乐和鲜明美国特色人物与情节为特点的小制作音乐剧。这使音乐剧能够将更为复杂的人物心理、美国历史和美国文学融入其中。1927年《演出船》(Show Boat)的上演宣告作为独立剧种的美国音乐剧形成了,而剧中那首控诉美国黑人苦难命运的《老人河》(Old Man River)更是成为人们耳熟能详的歌曲。之后涌现的《为你歌唱》(Of Thee I Sing!),《俄克拉荷马》(Oklahama),《国王和我》(The King and I和《南太平洋》(South Pacific)等优秀剧目不仅以颇具社会批判的视角参与建构了美国学问,也展现了音乐剧这种独特舞台表演形式的多重艺术维度。
