Federico García LorcaOur new piece “Oceans made small” by Neil Thomas Smith is about the life and death of this handsome man, the spanish poet Federico García Lorca (1898-1936).

Here is a beautiful text from the piece. The text is from the poem “Dos lunas de tarde” (Two evening moons).

Natasha will be singing it in spanish, but here it is in english:

The evening sings
a lullaby to the oranges.

My sister sings:
“The earth is an orange.”

The moon says crying:
“I want to be an orange.”

You cannot be, my child,
even if you become a rose.
Not even a little lemon.
Oh, what a pity it is!
