Tune of the Day: Das klinget so herrlich

from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's opera “The Magic Flute”

This is definitely one of the most hilarious scenes from The Magic Flute. It's at the end of Act I. Papageno and Pamina are looking for Tamino, but their search is interrupted by Monostatos, who mocks them and prepares to tie them up. Pamina and Papageno fear the worst, when Papageno remembers his Magic Bells: “He who dares has all to win!.” He lets the little bells sing out. Monostatos and the Slaves are entranced, and they all dance away singing this joyful song:

It sounds so happy,
Sounds so gay!
Larala la la larala!
Let’s sing and dance our time away!
Larala la la larala!
