The Tale of Tsar Saltan (Rimsky-Korsakov)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The Tale of Tsar Saltan (Сказка о царе Салтане in Russian, Skazka o Tsarie Saltanie in transliteration) is an opera in four acts by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov to a Russian libretto by Vladimir Ivanovich Belsky, based on the poem of the same name by Aleksandr Pushkin. Its full title is: "The Tale of Tsar Saltan, of his Son the Renowned and Mighty Bogatyr Prince Guidon Saltanovich, and of the Beautiful Swan Princess". The opera was composed in 1899-1900, and first performed at the Solodovnikov Theater, Moscow, 1900.
The Tale of Tsar Saltan, a stylized fairy-tale, tells the story of the marriage of Tsar Saltan to the youngest of three sisters, who bears him a son, Prince Guidon. Saltan, absent at the wars, is told by the Tsarina's jealous sisters, that she has borne him a monster, and commands that she and the child be put in a barrel and sent out to sea. Mother and son are eventually stranded on a desert island, whey: Guidon, now coming to manhood, saves a swan from attack by a kite, breaking the power of a sorcerer. As the Tsarina and Guidon sleep, the city of Ledenets appears on the island, and Guidon is welcomed by the people, released from enchantment, as their prince. The city has three wonders, a magic squirrel that eats nuts of gold and sings, thirty-three magic knights, who emerge sometimes from the sea, and the Swan-princess, whom Guidon had rescued and who eventually reveals herself to him in human form. Saltan, hearing of these wonders, sails to the island and is amazed to find there his beloved wife and a prince who greets him as father. The famous Flight of the Bumblebee is heard in Act 111 of the opera, when Guidon, transformed with the help of the Swan-princess into a bee, stings his wicked aunts and the old witch who has helped them. The Musical Pictures from the opera, which were performed before the first performance of the opera itself, include the music for the departure of Tsar Saltan, an introduction to Act 1, music from later in the Act, as the Tsarina and her baby are sent out to sea in a barrel, and the musical picture of the three wonders of Ledenets.Source(s): 知識+

這首短短的曲子取自林姆斯基—高沙可夫（Rimsky-Korsakov）的歌劇《蘇丹沙皇的故事》（The Tale Of Tsar Saltan）中第二幕。這整部歌劇在描寫蘇丹王娶了某富商的三女兒為妻後，卻引起兩位姊姊的嫉妒，而聯合陷害這名已貴為王妃的小妹。在一次蘇丹出外征戰時，王妃生下了王子，兩位姊姊就隨即指控王妃不貞，蘇丹憤而將妻和子丟入大海，未料母子未死，而是漂流到一處小島，並在該地生活。 一回，王子救了一隻被大黃蜂襲擊的白鳥，為報救命之恩，白鳥給了王子實現三個願望的機會。之後王子的三個願望分別是，一隻可以搬運寶石的栗鼠、三十三名強壯的武士、以及由白鳥所變成的美麗女子，而這位女子，最後當然是下嫁王子，從此比翼雙飛、幸福美滿。 這個歌劇裡面最有名的曲子就是「大黃蜂的飛行」，就是黃蜂正要襲擊白鳥時的音樂。長笛與裝有弱音器的小提琴所奏出的下行十六音符半音階，在於模仿大黃蜂飛行時嗡嗡嗡的振翅聲。該曲之後也多被以改編之後的大提琴獨奏版演出。http://www.books.com.tw/exep/prod/cd/cl_compositio...
