The Queen of the Night persuades Prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from captivity under the high priest Sarastro. But after learning the high ideals of Sarastro’s community, he seeks to join it. Tamino and Pamina undergo several trials of initiation, which end in the victory of true love. The earthy bird catcher Papageno accompanies the prince on his quest, fails completely but is nevertheless rewarded with his “Weibchen” Papagena. Truly triumphant in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”, of course, is the power of music.
