The story of The Magic Flute
Pursued by a serpent in a strange land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino soon finds himself at the centre of a wild adventure when he is saved by the mysterious handmaidens of the commanding Queen of the Night. Sent on a mission to save the Queen's captured daughter Pamina with a magic flute and bumbling servant Papageno, Tamino discovers his trials have just begun as he loses his heart to the Princess and comes to realise that the nature of good and evil in this odd place may not be as clear as they first appear.
