A series of 3 abstracts inspired by the aria "Queen of the Night". The excitement of going to the opera "The Magic Flute" , are captured in lively colors and shapes. Opening Night creates a flurry of activity getting everything prepared on stage. "Queen of the Night" is about the aria itself. It all has a fairytale quality. The Queen sings of the vengeance of death and despair to her daughter. It is a cruel, but beautiful aria which she sings and then melts. The 3 pieces are painted in watercolor.
