New sensation traditional opera Adamantina is adapted from the classic long verse poem, “Miao-Yu’s Meditation,” published in 1985 by major Taiwanese poet, Yang Mu (1940-2020). The story presents a rarely-heard passage from “The Twelve Beauties of Jingling” in the classic novel, A Dream of Red Mansions. The play elaborates on the possible feelings and actions of Miao-Yu, a Buddhist nun. Miao-Yu’s realization cannot be discussed; and her actions are triggered by her inner feelings. Listen to Miao-Yu’s singing: “The tiger loses its glory and envies the love of mandarin ducks. The woods are noisy, the cicadae are loud, and all but sorrowful sounds. Water flows and flows away, the red plum blossoms fade, so these thoughts should be continued no more.” This work brings together the genius work of Charles Liu, Liu Hsin-Jan, and Blaire Ko, and is their latest monodrama collaboration after their previous production of 2016, the jazz/traditional opera adaptation of Lady Macbeth.

《妙玉》全劇分作「逝水」「紫雲」二場,呈現在家尼姑妙玉對梅花與水的見解,依照《紅樓夢》脈絡,另穿插崑曲《牡丹亭》唱段。第一場「逝水」:師父百日,妙玉於廟中守靈,百無聊賴,望寺中柳樹,想起(夢見)自己受邀來到榮國府,並客居攏翠庵,修行、講課的日常。第二場「紫雲」:人手一本,妙玉講經。妙玉唱身世與命運,並以品茶與妝扮相比對,以示妙玉之道。女弟子穿梭席間,照料聽講情形。妙玉扮作黛玉,示範遊園情懷。妙玉不與黛玉相提,全出於錯把棺木當柳樹,又把柳樹當梅樹,再把梅身當我身的經過。妙玉坐定,魚罄紅梅聯詩。反身與妄念,其實沒有一處花園,都是心湖搖。
