The Magic Flute - Queen of the Night aria (Mozart; Diana Damrau, The Royal Opera)

103290 ratings | 6258958 views
Soprano Diana Damrau sings 'Der Hölle Rache', the famous Queen of the Night aria from Mozart's The Magic Flute, with Dorothea Röschmann as Pamina. Find out more at http://www.roh.org.uk/flute Mozart wrote Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) for a suburban theatre in Vienna, the Theater auf der Wieden. He drew on the magical spectacle and earthy comedy of popular Viennese theatre. As well as being a comedy, The Magic Flute is an expression of Mozart’s profound spiritual beliefs: Enlightenment concerns with the search for wisdom and virtue are at the heart of this enchanting tale. The Magic Flute was an instant success with audiences and Mozart’s supposed rival Salieri described it as an ‘operone’ – a great opera. David McVicar’s classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart’s work. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies. The setting provides a wonderful backdrop for Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score, from the Queen of the Night’s coloratura fireworks to Tamino and Pamina’s lyrical love duets and Papageno’s hearty, folksong-like arias.

This has got to be one of my favorite arias ever. I know I'll be able to sing it someday! I quietly peeped out an Ab6 in my voice lesson yesterday, so I know I can sing an F6!

Good lord this woman is just absolutely incredible. The way she can hit these notes,but still do that acting? Makes it look so damn easy. The way she makes her face look threatening but still absolutely gorgeous at all times and the way you can just see that emotion she has in her voice in her face as well is just so stunning. She is so wonderfully talented.

jewelmarkess (5 days ago)
" Mama'a going to kill you" LOL - it's mama is going to disown you unless you kill Zarastro the priest and with exactly this knife I gave you. This is right after the girl told her that the love of her life she's just met, whom the mama sent to kill the priest, decided to join the temple himself.

jewelmarkess (5 days ago)
She has a great voice, but there are other coloratura sopranos who can sing it too e.g. Lucia Popp. Look up "Amazing coloratura sopranos of all times" video (Diana Damrau whom you see here is there as well). Check out an Ukranian soprano Evgenia Miroshnichenko as well. Diana Damrau also acts wonderfully.
Me I've just seen a close up picture of Theresa May UK Prime Minister that say she makes me feel inside
