Tamino is helped by the magic flute and Papageno, the birdcatcher who lives in a hut in the woods and whose idea of heaven is hearth and home with Papagena, the girl of his dreams, and a clutch of little Papagenos to make it complete.

Popular songs are mixed with stirring choruses, arias of heart-melting beauty with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics. Enter an enchanted world and join Prince Tamino on his.
