 Die Zauberflöte  (Mozart) –  Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen

This clip comes from the opera die Zauberflöte, the Magic Flute, from Mozart. This particular version stars Diana Damrau singing the aria of the Queen of the Night (The vengeance of hell boils in my heart). The aria is famous for its speed, demanding nature, and the vocal range which covers two octaves. Before the aria begins the Queen of the Night is attempting to convince her daughter, Pamina, to kill her rival Sarastro.
