Elena Roger is still doing well in the UK after performing in Evita

John:  Hi there and welcome to another entertainment programme from BBC Learning English, with me John.
 
Chen Li:  And with me 陈鹂。 Hello John, what’s happening today?
 
John:  Ok, well, do you know the musical Evita?
 
Chen Li:  Of course I do, it’s a great musical. 今天,咱们就来说说音乐剧 Evita! But
what’s new about Evita, John? 为什么要谈论这个话题呢?音乐剧《埃维塔》
有什么新鲜事值得一说的呢?
 
John:  Well,  there’s a new star performing  the  lead  role. As you might know the story is about Eva Peron, an influential woman leader in Argentina, and the passion  that people  felt about her. Now  the lead role is to be
played by a real Argentinean.
 
Chen Li:  Ok, a new star performer is playing the part of Evita 一位新的明星要演绎这个主要角色 the lead role. 音乐剧《埃维塔》讲述的是埃维塔▪皮隆夫人,这位阿根廷女性先驱人物的情感生活故事。如今,是一位真正的阿根廷演员首次在舞台上诠释这个主要人物 a real Argentinean.
 
John:  Now what’s  interesting  is  that Elena Roger, who  is  the new Evita, got
the role in a unique way!
 
Chen Li:  How did she do it John? 
 
John:  She contacted Andrew Lloyd Webber about getting an audition for the role, and she sent him a DVD all about her work!
 
Chen Li:  That’s  clever! 原来,  Elena 决心要得到  Evita 这个角色,于是她给作曲家 Andrew Lloyd Webber 寄送了一盘她个人的DVD 唱片样本,她孤注一掷,一定要争取得到试音该角色的机会 an audition for the part. 
 
John:  Elena told us it was her friend who persuaded her to send her DVD to
Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Insert
 
I was working very good  in Argentina, and [I was] very happy. But she  told me about bringing this material, this DVD and show my work. She thought that I wasperfect  for  the  role.  I  say  “Well,  I  think  that  in  London  there  is  a  lot  of  good people that they know how to do musicals, but if you want, I’ll do it”.
 
John:       So Elena says she was doing well in Argentina.
 
Chen Li:   她在阿根廷的事业做得很成功 doing well.
 
John:  That means her career was successful in her home country, but it was Elena’s friend who persuaded her to send in the DVD to Andrew Lloyd Webber.
 
Chen Li:   她确信,在伦敦有很多杰出的人士擅长演音乐舞台剧。
 
John:  But Elena said to her friend “Well if you want to, I’ll do it!”
 
Chen Li:  于是,她就这样做了,她送了 DVD 样片,然后,得到通知要她来试音  she was called for an audition.
 
John:  Now  why  is  that  such  a  surprising  thing?  Well,  it’s  normally  very difficult  to get an audition  for a major London musical without having
worked on the London stage before.
 
Chen Li:   But that's what Elena did – and she was a success. Elena 做得相当不错,要知道得到一个试音的机会是非常困难的,尤其是在伦敦一个主打音乐剧中
major London musical. 
 
John:  Yes,  the auditions  for  the  London musicals are always  terrifying, and thousands of people are sometimes put  forward  for them. An actor or singer’s agent would normally find out when an audition is taking place, and  they would put  the actor  forward  to  take part.  It’s  then down  to the actor to do their best in the audition!
 
Chen Li:   It’s tough being an actor in London!
 
John:  I think it is everywhere Li.

Chen Li:  有数千人竞争在伦敦西区上演剧目的角色,一个演员的代理人,  an  actor’s agent, 会尽力为他的委托人争取到试音的机会 they put the actor forward, 然后,就轮到演员和歌手尽力而为来推销自己了。
 
John:  Now when Elena auditioned she was not very wealthy, she even had to
pay her own airfare  to come  to Britain to take part in the audition  for Evita!
 
Chen Li:  可怜的 Elena, 她是个演员,并没有多少钱,但是她甚至得自己掏腰包买机票 her own airfare, 来伦敦参加试音。
 
John:  Rather a gamble!
 
Chen Li:   An expensive gamble  too! Elena 可以说是冒了很大的风险她可能根本得不到这个角色。 Insert
 
I pay my flight, my first flight, I did my first audition, then another one, with all the staff of ‘Rag’, and Andrew Lloyd Webber too. And, well, then they wanted to see me again, so I fly twice, and I was very nervous for me, all these trips and all these auditions.
 
John:    Now  that’s why I could not become an actor! Imagine  the nerves, the stage fright, the butterflies in the tummy! 
 
Chen Li:  The what?
 
John:  Well  those  are  some  of  the  things  that  you might  feel  if  you  are  an actor. Nerves!
 
Chen Li:   神经紧张。
 
John:  Stage fright.
 
Chen Li:  怯场。
 
John:  Butterflies  in the  tummy. That’s a term we use  to describe  that nasty nervous  feeling  you  get  in  your  stomach  when  you’re  about  to  do something frightening!
 
Chen Li:  Butterflies in the tummy 也就是忐忑不安,心里七上八下。
 
John:  You know,  it  sounds  like a  very  stressful  time  for Elena.  Li have  you ever experienced stress like this?
 
Chen Li:   Well, presenting these programmes can be stressful! 
 
John:  Really?
 
Chen Li:  No I’m joking! 我刚才对 John 说,做BBC 的英文教学节目,有时候使我觉得压
力很大, stressful, 当然了,我仅仅是开个玩笑而已。
 
John:  Yes, this is BBC Learning English and if you’ve just joined us, welcome!
 
Chen Li:  我们谈论的是在伦敦上演的一出轰动的音乐剧 ‘Evita’, 目前担任主角的是一个新演员,我们刚才已经听到她是如何竞争到这个新角色的,如果你们也想成为音乐剧中的一名演员的话,也许可以从中受到一些启发。
 
John:  Right, well  let’s  hear more  of  Elena’s  story,  shall we?  After  her  final audition for Evita, she broke down in tears!
 
Chen Li:   Elena 忍不住哭了。 But why did she cry John?
 
John:  She  says  that  she was  relaxed  as  it was her  last  audition.  But  there was  a  lot  of  pressure  on  Elena,  and  this  audition  would  decide  the future of her  life. She was  thinking about her family, and her country that she loves. She let her feelings go. 
 Chen Li:   What an emotional story!
 
John:  Elena knew  that her  last audition  for  the musical was going  to decide the  future of her life. Everything depended on it. She started  thinking about her family and her country, and she felt very emotional and she
cried.
 
Chen Li:  I can see why she cried! 这是她最后一次试音的机会,决定她的前途未来, the future of her  life. 成败在此一举, everything depended on it. 她让自己的情感自然流露。  She  just  cried,  she  let  her  feelings  out,  she  let  her feelings go.
 
Insert
 
Well, I think that I was a little more relaxed because I know it was the last one. And it was, well this last scene, this last song will be, well, my life, the future of my life. So, I think about all my family, my country that I love so much, and the words, well the lyrics and the music is so amazing. So, I cry, I let my feelings go!
 
John:  Now, the musical Evita is based on the life of the leader Eva Peron. She was a passionate and charismatic leader and she did a lot for women’s rights in Argentina.
 
Chen Li:  Women’s  rights 女权。她在阿根廷一些贫困的城市地区修建房屋,为那些到城市里来打工的女孩们提供遮风挡雨的住所。
 
Insert
 
She did a lot for young girl[s] who came to the city, and she made big homes to get the girl[s] to sleep there, to eat there, so they help a lot.
 
John:  Eva Peron helping women in Argentina.
 
Chen Li:  Ok John, 咱们一起来回顾今天听到的生词和短语吧。 
 
John:  We’ve been talking about musicals today.
 
Chen Li:  音乐剧。

John:  Bye bye!
