A young man with a passion for reading discovers a book about a fantastical world in which cruel darkness is defeated by the light. Drawn in by the magic of the story, he becomes lost in his own adventure. On his journey, he meets the Queen of the Night and her rival, the mighty Sarasto, high priest of the sun.
The Queen and her Three Ladies charge him with a quest: to rescue the Queen’s beautiful daughter Pamina, who has been kidnapped by Monostatos, a mean and greedy servant working for Sarastro. Guided by Three Boys and accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno, Tamino sets out on a journey in search of love, truth and honour.
