The Magic Flute

Mozart's famous German singspiel, or opera, "The Magic Flute," tells a charming, fantastic story that includes a bird seller, a captured princess, a prince who wants to rescue her, an evil Queen of the Night,a priest and, of course, a magic flute. The plot is complicated but the music is beautiful and memorable. You won't be able to stop humming Papageno's theme song!
