LA MONNAIE DE MUNT

Sabine Devieilhe

Unforgettable as Queen of the Night

An impressive spectrum of emotional registers, coloraturas at breakneck speed and a stratospherically high F. Mozart really did go all out for the Queen of the Night’s entrance in Die Zauberflöte. Her grand aria ‘O zittre nicht, mein lieber Sohn” is a technical challenge unlike any other. In our 2018 production, Soprano Sabine Devieilhe gave everyone goosebumps with this soul-wrenching mother’s lament. She will soon take the stage at La Monnaie again for a recital dedicated to French mélodies.
