s03e24 Der hölle Rache

Klára Kolonits

“The most difficult aria in the world”, Der hölle Rache from the second act of Magic Flute. Full of high Fs and dramatic expression, it’s usually the area of the most daring high sopranos. The difficulties are different than in the Queen’s first aria, from certain point of view it may even be easier for some singers than the closing phrase of “O zittre nicht”. I will show the technical tricks I used in it, and also the Finnish lyrics from the 2014 Savonlinna production, as accidentally this was the score I picked for this video.
