♪Die Zauberflöte, K.620 Mozart

The Magic Flute, composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a perennial opera favorite performed by soprano Diana Damrau.  Act 2: Der Hölle Rache Kocht In Meinem Herzen (The Queen of the Night Aria) is epic!

With Dorothea Röschmann as Pamina. The three ladies are Gillian Webster, Christine Rice and Yvonne Howard.

This clip contains the scene in which der Hölle Rache is sung. The Queen of the Night gives her daughter a dagger and demands that she kill the Queen’s foe, or be cursed and disowned.

KÖNIGIN
Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
Fühlt nicht durch dich Sarastro Todesschmerzen,
so bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr:
Verstoßen sei auf ewig, verlassen sei auf ewig,
zertrümmert sein auf ewig alle Bande der Natur,
wenn nicht durch dich Sarastro wird erblassen!
Hört, hört, hört! Rachegötter hört! der Mutter
Schwur!

QUEEN
Hells vengeance seethes in my heart;
the flames of death and despair engulf me!
If Sarastro dies not by your hand,
you will be my daughter no more.
Forever repudiated, forever abandoned,
forever destroyed be all the ties of nature
if Sarastros blood is not shed by your hand!
Hear, hear, hear me, ye gods of vengeance hear!
a mothers vow!
