Lorelei: Heine translations from 'Shadowtime'

Lorelei Fountain i/ Heine Mermorial in The Bronx

Henry Hills is in the process of making a film in and around the letter “H” — and for that he is using my homophonic translation of  Harry (Heinrich) Heine’s “Die Lorelei,” with images of the The Bronx Lorelei Foundation. I recorded a reading of the poem for him last week, along with the rest of  my libretto for “Seven Tableaux Vivants Representing the Angel of History as Melancholia,” Scene 6 of Brian Ferneyough’s opera, Shadowtime.

Shadowtime: the Ferneyhough and Bernstein opera about Walter Benjamin premiered ten years ago
