a beautiful aria

September 21, 2009

 

in one of my favorite films, amadeus, there  is an aria that is simply divine.

it is from the german opera “the magic flute”  composed in 1791 by mozart.

the film itself is an interesting looking into the artists life.

this aria struck me the first time i heard it and i’ve loved it ever since.

i’m not sure who is singing the version on the score.

but there is a soprano by the name of diana damrau who has played the part of the queen.

her live performance of this aria is bananas.

the girl is bad.
