From the W H Auden translation of Mozarts Magic Flute:
Music makes us
wise and free
Join in peacful
I have done "The Magic Flute as a designer, director and sand Papageno probably a couple dozen times and ASTRAFIAMANTE-the glorious queen of the Night with her two colouratura arias like celestial fireworks are amongst my Favorites.
Music was the theme for collage obsession this week and I couldnt help but borrow Bougereau's Le Nuit to stand in for the angry queen-sandwiched with a baroque starry dome, a renaissance angel and the flute line of the opera (with some other random elements to creat my collage for this week.
Simpler than what I usually do but theres nothing more I could add to flesh it out further.
Thanks to Tiffany for the theme and some elements of this weeks challenge!!
