澳門和聲戲劇曲藝會主辦和聲戲曲風采耀韶城



澳門和聲戲劇曲藝會組織戲迷邀約九月廿二日廿三日北上韶關巿在韶關大劇院公演兩晚粵劇。
 


兩晚粵劇由廣東香山粵劇團全體演員在韶關公演“名臣豐碑”和“柳毅傳書”。

深唱家余美笑為出品人兼統籌監製,為紀念嶺南名人、余氏先祖、北宋名臣余靖專門組織創作排演。

其實該劇“名臣豐碑”早在二○一一年十二月永樂戲院首演;當時演出為一小時版本,手法異於一般戲曲的結構, 採用“雜誌式”鋪展北宋名臣余靖史跡,去年五月帶到韶關巡演,反響熱烈。

余美笑表示,澳門和聲戲劇曲藝會的成立, 旨在保存祖國地方文化瑰寳,承傳與弘揚粵劇藝術,達至陶冶性情,娛樂大衆,豐富居民文化生活。

泰國余氏宗親總會一行四十九人,於十月廿六日, 由國際佛光會世界總會副總會長(世界余氏宗親總會副會長)余聲清率領參訪佛光山的佛陀紀念館, 體驗人間佛教。眾人走入金佛殿時,看見金佛聖像倍感親切,紛紛說: 「泰國金佛很莊嚴!」。


佛光山寺住持心保和尚勉勵眾人,要學習諸佛菩薩慈悲的精神與智慧,並將佛法運用在日常生活的行住坐臥中, 好比吃飯時不起分別心,必能品嘗到食物的菜根香,體現星雲大師提倡人間佛教的精神。最後,心保和尚勉勵眾人, 「入寶山不要空手而歸」,把煩惱放下,使身心清淨,把佛法的歡喜帶回家。

余聲清表示,泰國的南傳佛教較漢傳佛教來得盛行,透過此次佛館之旅, 能使余氏宗親對漢傳佛教文化有更深入的認識與體會,並了解大師以教育、慈善、文化等多元面向,推展人間佛教的理念, 透過佛館的建設與設施,體會佛法以人為本的深意。

泰國余氏宗親總會副理事長余海平分享,從禮敬大廳走到成佛大道,即被銅鑄大佛的莊嚴壯麗攝受, 四周的環境氛圍讓他的心情自然就放鬆。

首次前來佛館的余福標喜悅表示,4D 電影《佛陀的一生》非常吸引人,以現代科技的聲光效果結合動畫, 讓眾人賞心悅目的當下,還能學習佛陀以慈悲心度化眾生,達到教化人心的效果。

團員徐秋麗表示,觀音殿的琉璃觀音與三十三尊觀音,讓她彷彿走進極樂世界,心靈清淨又自在, 眼前的事物都變得很美好,把煩惱都拋到九霄雲外,讓她此行收穫滿行囊。
