Canadian Opera company: DIe Zauberflöte: Queen of the night

...The Magic Flute is best known for the Queen of the Night aria, a soprano showpiece in which the imperious Queen tells her daughter that she will be disowned if she doesn’t kill Sorastro. Norwegian soprano Caroline Wettergreen, making her Canadian debut here, is marvellous in the role and in this aria in particular. Her Queen is all cheekbones and rage, singing with the purity and malice of a crystal skull tequila bottle, if a crystal skull tequila bottle could effortlessly rip out ringing high Fs and coloratura runs.
