'The Magic Flute' is a German-language opera written by Emanuel Schikaneder and with music composed by none other than Mozart. It is a fairytale opera set in a fairytale universe with fairytale characters: there is a Queen of the Night, a mysterious Sarastro, a birdcatcher - and the very young ones who have to go through so much: Pamina and Tamino. The opera follows Prince Tamino and the birdcatcher Papageno as they search for Pamina, the daughter of the Queen of the Night.
