Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozarts last opera The Magic Flute was written when Freemasonry was illegal under the Empress Maria
Theresa. Therefore Mozart and the librettist (E. Schikaneder) used Masonic symbols and imagery as well as
magical items to add interest to one of Mozarts best received operas. The Queen of the Nights aria is one of
the greatest showpieces of coloratura singing. This is a specially trained soprano voice which sings the
highest notes with a light, uid ease. The words sung in this aria are The vengeance of Hell is boiling in my
heart. It has been suggested that the character of the Queen of the Night was meant to symbolise the
empress herself.
The coloratura soprano part falls to the piccolo trumpet (or Eb Trumpet) and the orchestral parts have been
assigned to the remainder of the quintet. The string parts have been rhythmically simplied to facilitate
performance.
