Synopsis

  • Acte I

    The Queen of the Night has instructed Prince Tamino to go rescue her daughter Pamina, imprisoned by the sorcerer Sarastro, who is described as a tyrant. The Prince is accompanied on his quest by Papageno, a colourful bird-catcher, whose cowardice contrasts with Tamino’s nobility and courage. To help them in their fight against the evil forces, one is given a magic flute and the other receives some magic bells. Tamino must undergo several trials of initiation before joining the sacred cult and finding Pamina. As for Papageno, he will fail along the path to wisdom but will nevertheless find his Papagena.
