Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' - Aria with a Vengeance

The Queen of the Night’s show-stopping second act aria, “Der Holle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen” (“The wrath of hell seethes within my heart”) is known as one of the most challenging in the opera literature. Watch as coloratura soprano Liv Redpath, a student in Juilliard’s Ellen and James S. Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts, prepares the aria with faculty member Diane Richardson and conquers it in a live performance of the opera in Juilliard’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater.
