You know the story:
Once upon a time, Prince Tamino is joined by Papageno, a bird catcher, on a quest to rescue the beautiful Princess Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night. When they discover together that the Queen is evil, Tamino and Papageno choose to take the trials necessary to enter the temple of the High Priest, Sarastro. Meanwhile, the Queen finds Pamina and instructs her to kill Sarastro. With the help of a magic flute, Tamino and Pamina triumph and find love with each other and all live happily ever after… except for the Queen! .
