"Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen" ("Hell's vengeance boils in my heart"), commonly abbreviated "Der Hölle Rache", is an aria sung by the Queen of the Night, a coloratura soprano part, in the second act of Mozart's opera The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte).
Her aria ‘Der Hölle Rache’, more commonly known as the Queen of the Night aria, reaches an astonishingly high, Mariah Carey-level F6 above top C. It’s an aria reserved only for the most daring sopranos, like Mozart’s sister-in-law Josepha Hofer (the original Queen of the Night) and German opera singer Diana Damrau.

Popularly called “the Queen of the Night’s aria,” but since the character has more than one aria, it is better referred to by its first few words. The Queen wants revenge on Sarastro, and gives her daughter, Pamina, a knife, and makes her swear to kill Sarastro on pain of her mother cursing her if she refuses.
In the second act of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's opera "Die Zauberflöte" ("The Magic Flute"), the Queen of the Night descends upon her daughter's room in her father's palace. The queen would like to see her husband, Sarastro, dead. She demands her daughter, Pamina, be the one to accomplish this task.
