The Queen of the Night from Mozart's The Magic Flute has been Damrau's most frequently performed role to date, as she has been engaged to perform it in over 15 productions at houses including Covent Garden, the Salzburg Festival, the Vienna State Opera, Oper Frankfurt and the Bavarian State Opera, Munich.

Lyrics & English Translation

Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
(Hells Revenge boils in my heart,)
Tot und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
(Death and despair flame about me!)
Fühlt nicht durch dich Sarastro
(If Sarastro does not through you feel)
(The pain of death,)
So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr.
(Then you will be my daughter nevermore.)
Verstossen sei auf ewig,
(Isolated will you be forever,)
Verlassen sei auf ewig,
(Abandoned you will be forever,)
Zertrümmert sei'n auf ewig
(Destroyed forever!)
Alle Bande der Natur
(All the bonds of nature,)
Wenn nicht durch dich
(If not through you)
Sarastro wird erblassen!
(Sarastro becomes pale as death!)
Hört, Rachegötter,
(Hear, Gods of Revenge,)
Hoert der Mutter Schwur!
(Hear a Mother's oath!)

Full Song Title: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Aria (Queen of night)

Here is another one of my favorite Mozart pieces,it's from the Opera Die Zauberflöte K. 620 (The Magic Flute). Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of my absolute favorite composers and I can't get enough of him :-) .

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791), was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. Born in Salzburg, Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty.

At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death. The circumstances of his early death have been much mythologized. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons.

He composed over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and his influence on subsequent Western art music is profound. Ludwig van Beethoven composed his own early works in the shadow of Mozart, and Joseph Haydn wrote that "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years".

Diana Damrau, is one of the most sensational opera singers to emerge in the past decade. She has a sparkling voice that exudes personality, and her technique is so secure that she can concentrate her talents into bringing out a character's dramatic nuances. In Mozart's operas, she has already sung Kostanze in the "Entführung aus dem Serail," Susanna in "Le Nozze di Figaro," Servillia in "La Clemenza di Tito" and Fauno in "Ascanio in Alba." She has also assayed the lead roles in Donizetti's "Don Pasquale and L 'Elisir d 'Amore," Rossini's "Il Barbiere di Siviglia," Salieri's "Europa Riconosciuta" and Strauss' "Die Ägyptische Helena," "Ariadne auf Naxos," "Arabella" and "Der Rosenkavalier." While she is an outstanding and endearing presence in all these operas, the role where she remains nonpareil is as the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte k. 620).

No other soprano, not even those legendary singers that include Lucia Popp, Roberta Peters, Luciana Serra or Sumi Jo, have mastered the role's technical and dramatic demands the way Damrau has in the past decade or so that she has been singing this extremely complex character. In the ten minutes that she is onstage, she breathes so much life into the Queen that she can save a performance from mediocrity.

Mrs. Damrau retired this singing part in 2006. Most opera stars sing the role and then put it away forever because it's so hard on the voice. Well, those are High Fs. A lot of them :-).

The Magic Flute (German: Die Zauberflöte), K. 620, is an opera in two acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder. The work is in the form of a Singspiel, a popular form that included both singing and spoken dialogue. The work premiered on 30 September 1791 at Schikaneder's theatre, the Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna.

"Retaliation" and "Retaliate" redirect here. For other uses, see Retaliation (disambiguation) and Revenge (disambiguation).

Revenge is a form of primitive justice usually assumed to be enacted in the absence of the norms of formal law and jurisprudence. Often, revenge is defined as being a harmful action against a person or group in response to a grievance, be it real or perceived. It is used to right a wrong by going outside of the law. This is because the individual taking revenge feels as though the law will not do justice. Revenge is also known as payback, retribution, retaliation, or vengeance; it may be characterized as a form of justice (not to be confused with retributive justice), an altruistic action which enforces societal or moral justice aside from the legal system. Francis Bacon described it as a kind of "wild justice" that "does... offend the law [and] putteth the law out of office".[1] Primitive justice or retributive justice is often differentiated from more formal and refined forms of justice such as distributive justice and divine judgment.

Suspect in custody after officer-involved shooting on Sanibel

Posted: Nov 20, 2016 8:51 PM ESTUpdated: Nov 21, 2016 7:04 AM EST

Officer Jarred CicconeOfficer Jarred Ciccone
A Sanibel Island police officer was injured during a drive-by shooting Sunday in an incident that has never occurred in the city's history. 
The situation began around 8 p.m. when the officer, identified as Jarred Ciccone, was hit in the shoulder while conducting a traffic stop.
The gunman fled the scene and was eventually located in the Dunes neighborhood where a shootout ensued between the man and responding officers.
The police chief said the suspect lives in the neighborhood and was inside his home in the 1400 block of Sandcastle Road when the gunfight occured. 
The suspect was struck by gunfire in the shoulder and back before being taken into custody. 
While police have not released the suspect's name, a man by the name of Jon Webster Hay with a Sandcastle Road address was booked into the Lee County Jail early Monday morning on a charge of Homicide. 
The officer in this situation, however, is expected to be OK. We are working to find out the reason behind the homicide charge. 
Officer's condition 
The officer involved was shot in the shoulder and taken to the Lee Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released. 
Officer Ciccone has been a member of the Sanibel Police Department for a number of years. 
In fact, in May of last year, he was named Officer of the Year by the Lee County Bar Association for using a defibrillator to save a woman's life. 
Neighbors react 
The incident comes as a shock to neighbors as it is the first time something like this has happened in the city's history. 
Residents of the Dunes neighborhood were told to lock their doors and stay away from all windows. 
"The officer had been shot, and the person was running around the dunes, and that we were to lock all of our doors," recalled neighbor Hubert Whitaker. 
The police department gave the neighborhood the all clear a few hours after the incident.
