The Magic Flute Opera in 2 acts (2 hours)
The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) is an opera in two acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder made as a Singspiel, a popular form that includes both singing and spoken dialogue. The work premiered on September 30th 1791 at Schikaneder's theatre (Vienna), just two months before the composer's premature death.
Prince Tamino faints when attacked by a giant serpent, but he is rescued by three ladies armed with spears. Papageno, the Queen's bird-catcher, will try to convince him that he was the one who saved him. When the three ladies hear that, they shut his mouth with a padlock for his lies.
They, with a portrait of Pamina, the Queen of the Night's daughter, warn him about her kidnapping by the evil Monostatos, Sarastro's hitman. Wielding the power of a magic flute and a carillon, provided by the Queen of the Night herself, Tamino and Papageno go to the palace of Sarastro to rescue Pamina.
The palace guards will try to prevent the rescue, but Papageno will play the carillon to make them dance forever. Meanwhile, Tamino and Pamina will have to overcome the trials of fire and water while remaining silent and aided by the power of the flute and the carillon to finally reach the Temple of Wisdom.
Once Pamina is rescued, she and Tamino marry. Papageno will find Papagena, another bird-catcher who will steal his heart.
