When fleeing from a gigantic snake, Prince Tamino gets lost in an enchanted forest. He meets the clever bird catcher Papageno and falls in love with the picture of a beautiful princess. Many star-blazing and sun-shining adventures await Tamino and Papageno. They have to walk through fire and water to win the real princess. A magic flute and puppets help plus an enchanted being that can draw and other fantastic figures also play a role. The music in this 60-minute version of Mozart's most famous opera is made by "airy" wind instruments. Welcome to the Fairy-Tale Circus Sarastro!
