MOZART: The Magic Flute - Overture:


The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte), K. 620, is an opera in two act. In this opera, the QUEEN of the NIGHT persuades Prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from captivity under the high priest Sarastro 😉 --- The Magic Flute is noted for its prominent Masonic elements. The opera is also influenced by Enlightenment philosophy and can be regarded as advocating enlightened absolutism. The QUEEN of the NIGHT is seen by some to represent a dangerous form of obscurantism 😉

In a completely different register, if I may say, here is an extract of the movie Marguerite, here trying to sing the Queen of the night aria. This movie is the story of a woman who wants to be an operatic singer but who sings terribly out of key. Hilarious and distressing at the same time... 😁

It hurt my trained ears a lot, and yet I went to see this very beautiful movie! (2015) which was selected and presented in competition at the Venice Film Festival, where it received FOUR awards including that of the best actress for
Catherine FROT 🤩
during the 41st CESAR ceremony.
THANK YOU, very, very much, Ms Zizounaï!! 😘😘
