|Translation:||Yes, I am a Bird-catcher|
OperaPulse’s Aria of the Week – Papageno is one of the most lovable characters in all of the opera repertoire. He’s charming, entertaining, reasonable, and just plain goofy! This aria, Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja (Yes, I am a Bird-catcher) from Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, is Papageno’s first entrance in the opera and gives a great introduction to his quirky character.
Watch the baritones below as they sing a simple yet exciting melody. This is a great aria to use to introduce opera to a youngster, too! Tell us who your favorite is at the bottom of the page.
