A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Musical – “Fiona”

While all the Baudelaires get acquainted with Fiona to vary degrees, Klaus falls for her almost instantly. Though she’s originally supposed to work with Violet on the telegraph device, she ends up spending more time with her brother. Mostly because the device doesn’t need much fixing to begin with. Another reason is that they’re both teenagers with raging hormones and few opportunities. They’re also very bright. In fact, Fiona serves as the Queequeg’s head engineer despite not being a formal member of the crew and can actually understand some of Sunny’s speech. He’s also intrigued by her interest in mushrooms, which has nothing to do with recreational drug use. Then again, this is a thirteen-year-old boy who prefers his novels interspersed with Wikipedia entries. And I’m sure being a bit older than Violet with triangle glasses didn’t hurt either.

Again, I go with West Side Story’s “Maria” which depicts Tony when he learns the name of the Puerto Rican girl he’s fallen in love with. In this version, Klaus sings Fiona’s name though at least I have get to know her a little more. But he’s nonetheless infatuated with her.

 

“Fiona”

Sung by Klaus Baudelaire

Fiona…

The most beautiful sound I’ve ever heard:
Fiona, Fiona, Fiona, Fiona…
All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word
Fiona, Fiona, Fiona, Fiona…
Fiona, Fiona…

Fiona!
I’ve just met a girl named Fiona
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me

Fiona!
I’ve just kissed a girl named Fiona
And suddenly I’ve found
How wonderful a sound
Can be!

Fiona!
Say it loud and there’s music playing
Say it soft and it’s almost like praying
Fiona…
I’ll never stop saying Fiona!

Fiona! Fiona! Fiona! Fiona! Fiona!
Fiona! Fiona! Fiona! Fiona!

Say it loud and there’s music playing
Say it soft and it’s almost like praying
Fiona
I’ll never stop saying Fiona!
The most beautiful sound I ever heard
Fiona
