Overview


Synopsis

The young prince Tamino, being pursued by a horrible snake, finds himself in the lands of the Queen of the Night. After the Queen's Ladies help kill the snake, Tamino meets Papageno, the Queen's bird catcher. Soon, it is revealed to Tamino, that a distant king, Sarastro, has abducted the Queen's beautiful daughter, Pamina. After seeing her portrait, Tamino quickly falls in love. With the help of a magic flute, given to him by the Queen, Tamino and Papageno go on a quest to save Pamina. Meanwhile, in Sarastro's palace, Pamina is being tormented by the slavekeeper, Monostatos. Soon, Tamino and Papageno arrive and are surprised to find that Sarastro is not the cruel tyrant they thought. It turns out that Sarastro abducted Pamina because the gods had intended that she was to marry Tamino. After passing a series of tests by the Priests, Tamino is granted Pamina's hand.
