The protagonist of the Magic Flute is the fearless young Prince Tamino. He is commissioned by the Queen of the Night to free her daughter Pamina from Sarastro Castle. Sarastro is an enemy of the Queen of the Night.

  Together with the bird catcher Papageno, Tamino sets off. They are both given a "weapon" to make their job easier. Tamino receives a flute with magical powers, Papageno an enchanted chime, but when they arrive at Sarastro, the two have to realize that things are not what they seem. Not the prince, but the queen of the night has bad intentions with Pamina. Tamino also learns that he and Pamina are meant for each other. Now a fight begins, in which the two first have to prove themselves as heroes and then against the evil queen. In the end, not only Tamino and Pamina but also Papageno and the woman destined for him are united. Her name is Papagena.
