Pamina's love for the Prince is awakened when she hears the tales of Papageno, the bird catcher, with whom she then sings a love duet, Papageno standing in for Tamino.
However, these two children of royal blood have a few obstacles to surmount before they can be united.
Fortunately there's always music in the meantime: Tamino is given a magic flute that can tame wild animals, and Papageno has a musical instrument, a glockenspiel of magic chimes.

This is the story of Tamino, a young foreign prince who, on the orders of the Queen of the Night, ventures into the kingdom of Sarastro and faces terrible ordeals out of love for Pamina.
It is also the story of Papageno, a cheeky bird-catcher who only dreams of eating, drinking and ... is Mozart’s last operatic work and also the most amazing thanks to its mixture of genres and styles, from fantastic tale to philosophical fable, from Viennese comedy to virtuoso opera.
An essential part of any Mozart festival such as the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, this Mozart’s masterpiece is presented in Simon Mc Burney’s fascinating production.
The British director returns to the magic of theatrical entertainment through his everpoetic use of technology and his in-depth reading of the libretto, whose universal appeal stems from its very diversity.
