What happens in 'The Magic Flute'?

A handsome prince sets out on an adventure to rescue a damsel in distress. He takes along a cowardly but good-natured birdcatcher, Papageno, who is more interested in finding a wife than seeking adventure.

Along the way, the Prince Tamino meets a Queen who is not as nice as she seems, and a villain by the name of Monostatos, who is just as bad as he seems.

Tamino, Papageno and the princess Pamina must all trust in the power of music to lead them through the dark and dangerous adventures ahead…

Mozart's last lyric work, The Magic Flute is also the most astonishing of all by its mixture of genres and styles, from the fantastic tale to the philosophical fable, and Viennese comedy to virtuoso opera.
