What a strange land Prince Tamino found himself in! Although he is saved from a terrible dragon by three mysterious Ladies, the jolly birdcatcher Papageno takes credit for his rescue. Will he be punished for this? Who is the wrathful Queen of the Night, singing one of the most famous arias in the history of opera? What role does the sorcerer Sarastro play in this world? Will Tamino be able to find and free his beloved beautiful Pamina with the help of an extraordinary flute? Will the silver bells lead Papageno to his love? The brave and prudent Tamino and the unruly chatterbox Papageno will find answers to these and other questions during their journey together. Each of them will receive a magical instrument for the journey, and the extraordinary power of music will certainly help them face all trials and turmoils.

The artists of the Polish Royal Opera invite the youngest music lovers to Andrzej Klimczak’s staging of The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This fairy-tale story is a great opportunity to show children the extraordinary world of opera, where brilliant music, singing and dancing, breathtaking scenography and costumes, and a moving story merge into one coherent work, to which it is impossible to remain indifferent.
