Die Zauberflöte: Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Lyrics


Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Hells Revenge cooks in my heart,

Tot und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
Death and despair flame about me!

Fühlt nicht durch dich Sarastro
If Sarastro does not through you feel

Todesschmerzen,
The pain of death,

So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr.
Then you will be my daughter nevermore.

Verstoßen sei auf ewig,
Disowned may you be forever,

Verlassen sei auf ewig,
Abandoned may you be forever,

Zertrümmert sei'n auf ewig
Destroyed be forever

Alle Bande der Natur
All the bonds of nature,

Wenn nicht durch dich
If not through you

Sarastro wird erblassen!
Sarastro becomes pale!

Hört, Rachegötter,
Hear, Gods of Revenge,

Hoert der Mutter Schwur!
Hear a mother's oath!

TRANSCRIPTION:
Pamina (PAM); Queen of the Night (QN)

PAM: Mutter? Mutter!
QN: Wo ist der Jüngling, den ich an dich sandte?
PAM: Oh liebe Mutter, der ist der Welt und den Menschen auf ewig entzogen. Er hat sich den Eingeweihten gewidmet.
QN: Den Eingeweihten?
PAM: Ja...
QN: Unglückliche Tochter, nun bist du mir auf ewig entrissen.
PAM: Entrissen? O fliehen wir liebe Muter! Unter deinem Schutz trotz ich jeder Gefahr.
QN: Schutz? Mein liebes Kind, deine Mutter kann dich nicht mehr schützen. Mit deines Vaters Tod gieng meine Macht zu Grabe.
PAM: Mein Vater...
QN: Dein Vater! Übergab freiwillig den siebenfachen Sonnenkreis den Eingeweihten. Als ich ihn darüber beredete, so sprach er: Weib! meine letzte Stunde ist da. Alle Schätze sind dein und deiner Tochter. Nur, den siebenfachen Sonnekreis wird Sarastro so männlich verwalten, ich bisher. Forsche nicht nach Wesen, die den weiblichen Geiste unbegreiflich sind. Deine Pflicht ist, dich und deine Tochter, der Führung weiser Männer zu überlassen.
PAM: So bist der Jüngling auf immer für mich verloren.
QN: Verloren! Siehst du hier diesen Stahl? Er ist für Sarastro geschliffen. Du wirst ihn tödten, und den mächtigen Sonnenkreis mir überliefern.
PAM: Aber Mutter...
QN: Kein Wort!

Aria
Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Tod und Verzweiflung
Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich er!
Fühlt nicht durch dich Sarastro Todesschmerzen
Sarastro Todesschmerzen,
So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr
So bist du meine - meine Tochter nimmermehr.
Meine Tochter nimmermehr!
So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr.
Verstossen sei auf ewig,
Verlassen sei auf ewig.
Zertrümmert sei'n auf ewig
Alle Bande der Natur,
Verstossen, verlassen
und zertrümmert!
Alle Bande - Alle Bande der Natur,
Wenn nicht durch dich Sarastro wird erblassen!
Hört! Hört! Hört! Rachegötter,
Hört der Mutter Schwur!

Okay for anybody who want's to know the English translation to this here it is, press "Read More"

The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart,
Death and despair flame about me!

If Sarastro does not through you feel
The pain of death,
Then you will be my daughter nevermore.
Disowned may you be forever,
Abandoned may you be forever,
Destroyed be forever
All the bonds of nature,
If not through you
Sarastro becomes pale! (as death)
Hear, Gods of Revenge,
Hear a mother's oath!

Basically she wants her daughter to kill Sarastro, and if she doesn't. Then her mother will disown her as a daughter. Sad but true.

Asia C Level And Who else wants a translation of what they are saying before the song?
"Mother? Mother!"
"WHERE IS THE SAPLING I SENT TO YOU?"
"Oh dear mother, he is withdrawn from the world and people for eternity. He devoted himself to the Initiates."
"THE INITIATES?!"
"Yes..."
"UNLUCKY DAUGHTER, NOW YOU ARE WRESTED FROM ME FOREVER!"
"Wrested? Let's flee, dear mother! Under your protection I face any danger."
"PROTECTION?! MY DEAR CHILD, YOUR MOTHER CANNOT PROTECT YOU ANYMORE! ALONG WITH YOUR FATHER'S DEATH MY POWER WENT TO THE GRAVE."
"My father -"
"YOUR FATHER HANDED THE SEVENFOLD SUNSPHERE VOLUNTARILY TO THE INITIATES! WHEN I ADDRESSED HIM HE SPOKE: 'WOMAN, MY LAST HOUR HAS COME, ALL TREASURES ARE YOURS - AND YOUR DAUGHTER'S, ONLY THE SEVENFOLD SUNSHPERE SARASTRO WILL MANAGE AS MANLY AS I DID UNTIL NOW. DO NOT SEARCH FOR SOME NATURE THAT IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE FOR THE FEMALE MIND. YOUR DUTY IS TO SUCCUMB YOURSELF AND YOUR DAUGHTER TO THE LEADERSHIP OF WISE MEN.' "
"So, the sapling is lost for me forever?"
"LOST! DO YOU SEE THE STEEL? IT WAS SHARPENED FOR SARASTRO. YOU WILL KILL HIM! AND DELIVER THE MIGHTY SUNSPHERE TO ME."
"But mother!"
"NOT A WORD!"



Oliver Gröning

The first 2 min. (German -> English)

Mother!
Where is the youth which I sent for you?
Oh dear mother! He is removed from the world and men forever as he consecrated himself to the initiated.
To the initiated?!!
Yes!
Unlucky daughter, now you are lost to me forever.
Lost forever? Oh, let us flee dear mother. With your protection I will face every odd.
Protection? My dear child, your mother can no longer protect you! With the death of your father my power went to the grave with him.
1’00
My father…
Thy father handed over freely the 7-fold circle of the sun to the initiated.
When I confronted him on this he said ”Woman! My last hour has come. All treasures are thine and your daughter’s. But, the 7-fold circle of the sun Sarastro will govern with manly measure as I did. Do not ponder matters that a female mind cannot understand! Your duty and the one of your daughter is to be ruled by wise men.”
So the youth is lost to me forever?
Lost forever!
Do you see this dagger? It is sharpened for Sarastro. You will kill him! And deliver the 7-fold circle of the sun to me!
Mother!
No more words!
2’12
Hells revenge boils in my heart… (Aria)



Oliver Gröning

@Sean Silence It is very powerful indeed
From 2'12 on...
Hell's revenge is boiling in my heart
Death and desperation, death and desperation are flaming all around me.
If Sarastro will not feel deadly pains from you, you will be my daughter no more.
You will be my daughter no more... (Arpeggios to the high C)
My daughter no more...(Arpeggios to the high C)
So you will be my daughter no more.
Cast out be forever...
Abandoned be forever...
Destroyed be forever all bonds of nature.
Cast out be forever...
Abandoned be forever...
Destroyed be forever all bonds of nature. (Arpeggios)
All bands of nature... if not by thy Sarastro will pale...
Hear, hear, HEAR all Gods of vengeance.
Hear the mother's oath.

This is how it goes down when I don't clean my room and my mom and I get into a dispute.

Steam Punkster And tells you if you don‘t kill him, you won‘t be her daughter anymore?

Steam Punkster

Oh so mom sings an aria? And instructs you to commit murder on a grand wizard?
That's cool.

Those who disliked this video probably don't know how DIFFICULT is to do
that "whoah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-aaaah! ...
whoah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-aaaah!... whoah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-aaaah!"

nimedhel09

Yeah, that staccato is... HARD. And Diana Damrau does it with such ease and attitude! And let's not even talk about the trill she does in the last "alle bande der natur"

Danny Timms

Maybe it just doesn't sound nice to them.
Maybe they're not as good as you.

Ist impossible to do it your own but ist much better to be trained by professional opera singer.
