DRAWN FROM E.T.A. HOFFMANN'S GOTHIC WRITINGS, OFFENBACH'S OPERA, "LES CONTES D'HOFFMANN", PORTRAYS HOFFMANN IN LOVE WITH INNOCENCE AND GRACE PERSONIFIED IN OLYMPIA.  

 

BEGUILED BY SWEET TALKS OF FOREVERMORE, THE GERMAN ROMANTICIST IS ENGULFED INTO A PASSIONATE AFFAIR AND YET MECHANICALLY MUNDANE EXISTENCE OF AN AUTOMATON, WINDING-UP AND WINDING-DOWN.

 

 OLYMPIA BINDS HOFFMANN IN UNDULATING RIBBONS OF GOLDWORK, LIVING MOMENT TO MOMENT IN AN UNENDING CYCLE OF DELIRIOUS HAPPINESS TO UNFATHOMABLE MELANCHOLY.

""Tout ce qui chante et résonne, et soupire tour à tour,

Emeut son coeur qui frissonne d''amour!"

 Jacques Offenbach
