"Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen" air is contained in the singspiel in two acts "The Magic Flute" (k620) composed in 1791 by W. A. Mozart.
"Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen", commonly abbreviated "Der Hölle Rache", is often referred to as "The Queen of the Night Aria", despite the fact that the Queen of the Night character sings another distinguished aria earlier in the opera, "O zittre nicht, mein lieber Sohn". It is considered to be one of the most famous opera arias, highly memorable, fast paced and menacingly grandiose.
The aria depicts a fit of vengeful rage, in which the Queen of the Night puts a knife into the hand of her daughter Pamina and exhorts her to assassinate Sarastro, her rival, on pain of denying and cursing her if Pamina does not comply. [Wikipedia]
