    史上最偉大音樂劇之一的【CATS貓】是音樂劇天王Andrew Lloyd Webberr/安德烈洛依韋伯將詩人T.S. Elliot/艾略特的詩集「Old Possum’s Book of Practical Ctas」改編而成的曠世鉅作!

    以華麗舞蹈拼貼而成的【CATS】中,每一隻貓都有其不同的性格及名字,這些聰明過人的貓咪們聚集在一起舉行年度慶典,而最具智慧的長老貓,將從眾貓中選出一位最有資格獲得新生命的貓。劇情隨著一隻隻獨特而有趣的貓出場而展開,在形形色色的貓咪們彼此爭奇鬥豔、載歌載舞之後,長老貓終於做出了決定,那隻歷盡滄膾炙人口的經典"Memory",在劇中出自老貓Grizabella,當她衣衫襤褸的出場時,所有的貓咪都敬而遠之、甚至落井下石。她以這首歌回憶昔日的風光,歌詞中描寫她雖然從一隻出入上流社會的美麗貓咪,變成了連同類都不屑一顧的落魄老貓,但是她卻能從中了解幸桑的老母貓Grizabella,將進入屬於貓兒們的真正天堂;在眾貓的齊聲吟唱祝福中,為這齣多采多姿的音樂劇畫下句點。

    福的真諦。1981年,【CATS】在倫敦首演時是由音樂劇名伶Elaine Paige飾演Grizabella,在她高亢的嗓音詮釋下,"Memory"一曲紅透半邊天

    Memory

    (音樂劇-貓)詞:艾略特(Treror Eliot) 曲:Andrew Lloyd Webber

    Midnight, not a sound from the pavement.

    Has the moon lost her memory?

    She is smiling alone.

    In the lamp light the witheredleaves collect

    at my feet,and the wind begins to moan.

    Memory, all alone in the moon light.

    I can smile at the old days, I was beautiful then.

    I remember the time I knew what happiness was, let the memory live again.

    Every street lamp seems to beat a fatal is tic warning.

    Someone mutters and a street lamp gutters and soon it will be morning.

    Daylight I must wait for the sunrise, I must think of a new life.

    And I mustn't give in.

    When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too.

    And a new day will begin.

    Burnt out ends of smoky days, the stale cold smell of morning.

    The street lamp dies, another night is over, another day is dawning.

    Touch me.

    It's so easy to leave me.

    All alone with the memory.

    Of my days in the sun.

    If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is.

    Look, a new day has begun.
