music score of Turandot 杜蘭朵的譜 
The chorus which I work in is going to play the opera "Turandot" next month.
Turandot is written by Puccini and it's a chinese story.
It talks about a beautiful chinese princess who hated every men in the world cuz
she wanted to take the revenge for her grandmathoer.
And she killed every single man who came to look for her.
But she finally surrendered for the love and changed her mind.
The composer used the chinese folk song "Jasmine", all of the chinese or taiwanese
who study the music for sure know about it.
That day I was talking to my colleague, she's an sicilian.
"Hey, you know the melody of Turant is coming from our folk song."
"Really??" she was so surprised...
我在這邊工作的合唱團下個月要演出杜蘭朵
杜蘭朵是浦契尼寫的歌劇 是個中國故事
述說有關一個美麗的中國公主為了替祖母報仇
而誓言憎恨全天下的男人
她殺了每個前來仰慕她的人但最後卻仍是被愛征服而改變初衷
作曲家用了我們大家耳熟能詳的旋律"茉莉花"
這是我們每個中國或台灣音樂系的學生都眾所皆知的事
那天我和我從西西里來的同事提起這件事
"嘿! 你知道杜蘭朵的旋律是從我們的民歌來的嗎?"
"真的嗎?"她好驚訝...
