you and your music
October 12, 2010
i love this film.
i love this scene in particular.
the woman is hilarious.
i love when she says, “you marry him, you wont have a pot to piss in.”
and i know id love the opera, the magic flute.
id love to hear the queen of the night aria live at the met.
let us all pray that i get to do that within a year.
the true beauty of this aria is in the language.
opera in german is simply marvelous.
even though most prefer italian or french,
i do enjoy the rough edges of the german language when sung operatically.
see if you can follow with the lyrics ive provided.
verlassen sei auf ewig,
zertrümmert sei’n auf ewig.
alle bande der natur.
sarastro wird erblassen.
hört der mutter schwur.
