Program Notes The aria "I'll Have Revenge" (Der Hölle Rache") is sung by the Queen of the Night in the second act of Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute." The Queen of the Night is one of Mozart's most famous operatic figures, which is rather surprising as she sings only two arias in the entire opera. However, it is the style of these arias which has made the character justifiably famous: both are extremely virtuosic and require a high range and great vocal flexibility - a coloratura. Mozart probably wrote the arias in this way to represent the external glitter but inner hardness of the Queen. She first appears seemingly as a representative of the forces of good and light, and only in the second act of the opera do we discover that she is the symbol of darkness and superstition.
