Range Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja

Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja , a setting by Emanuel Schikaneder, was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791 (G minor) and premiered the same year. This aria is part of Act I of the opera, die Zauberflöte.

Mozart wrote die Zauberflöte in 1791, aged 36, at the peak of his creativity. Sadly enough, this would be his last one, as he died a few months later. This singspiel opera (sang and spoken German) is the successful outcome of his collaboration with Emanuel Schikaneder’s theatrical troupe, resident company at the Theater auf der Wieden.

Act I opens on Tamino, a handsome prince, pursued by a dragon. As he faints, three ladies kill the monster. They find him very attractive so they try to convince the other two to leave them alone with him. They do not manage to agree and leave all together.
As Tamino wakes up, Papageno enters singing an aria about his work as a bird catcher: Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja.
