Synopsis

ACT I. Three ladies in the service of the Queen of the Night save the fainting Prince Tamino from a serpent. When they leave to tell the queen, the birdcatcher Papageno bounces in and boasts to Tamino that it was he who slew the serpent. The ladies return to give Tamino a portrait of the queen's daughter, Pamina, who they say is enslaved by the evil Sarastro, and they padlock Papageno's mouth for lying. Tamino immediately falls in love with Pamina's face in the portrait. The queen, appearing in a burst of thunder, is grieving over the loss of her daughter; she charges Tamino with Pamina's rescue. The ladies hand a magic flute to Tamino and magic silver bells to Papageno to ensure their safety, appointing three spirits to guide them. Sarastro's slave, Monostatos, pursues Pamina but is frightened away by the feather-covered Papageno, who tells Pamina that Tamino loves her and intends to save her.
Led to the Temple of Sarastro, Tamino is advised by a high priest that it is the queen, not Sarastro, who is evil. Hearing that Pamina is safe, Tamino charms the animals with his flute, then rushes to follow the sound of Papageno's pipes. Monostatos and his retainers chase Papageno and Pamina but are rendered helpless by Papageno's magic bells. Sarastro, entering in ceremony, promises Pamina eventual freedom and punishes Monostatos. Pamina is enchanted by a glimpse of Tamino, who is led into the temple with Papageno.
ACT II. Sarastro tells his priests that Tamino will undergo initiation rites. Sworn to silence, Tamino is impervious to the temptations of the queen's ladies, who have no trouble derailing the cheerful Papageno from his course of virtue. The Queen of the Night dismisses Monostatos, whom she finds kissing the sleeping Pamina, and gives her daughter a dagger with which to murder Sarastro. The weeping Pamina is confronted and consoled by Sarastro. The gourmand Papageno is just as quick to break a new oath of fasting, and he jokes with a flirtatious old lady, who vanishes when asked her name. Tamino remains steadfast, breaking Pamina's heart: she cannot understand his silence. The priests inform Tamino that he has only two more trials to complete his initiation. Papageno, who has broken his oath, is eliminated from the trials, but after pleading for a cuddly wife settles for the old lady. When he promises to be faithful she turns into a young Papagena, but soon disappears. After the spirits save the despairing Pamina from suicide, she finds Tamino and walks with him through the ordeals by water and fire, protected by the magic flute. Papageno also is saved from attempted suicide by the spirits, who remind him that if he uses his magic bells he will find true happiness. When he does, Papagena appears and the two plan for the future and move into a bird's nest. The Queen of the Night, her three ladies, and Monostatos attack the temple but are defeated and banished. Sarastro joins Pamina and Tamino as the throng hails Isis, Osiris, and the triumph of courage, virtue, and wisdom.

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Die Thüre wird aufgemacht; Tamino, Pamina umarmen sich.

PAMINA
Pause
Tamino mein! O welch ein Glück!

TAMINO
Pamina mein! O welch ein Glück!

TAMINO
Hier sind die Schreckenspforten,
Die Noth und Tod mir dräun.

PAMINA
Ich werde aller Orten
An deiner Seite seyn.
Ich selbsten führe dich;
Die Liebe leite mich!
nimmt ihn bey der Hand
Sie mag den Weg mit Rosen streu'n,
Weil Rosen stets bey Dornen seyn.
Spiel du die Zauberflöte an;
Sie schütze uns auf unsrer Bahn;
Es schnitt in einer Zauberstunde
Mein Vater sie aus tiefstem Grunde
Der tausendjähr'gen Eiche aus
Bey Blitz und Donner, Sturm und Braus.

TAMINO, PAMINA
Nun komm, ich / und spiel' die Flöte an.

ZWEY GEHARNISCHTE
Sie leitet uns / euch auf grauser Bahn.
Wir wandeln / Ihr wandelt durch des Tones Macht
Froh durch des Todes düstre Nacht.

English Libretto or Translation:

Pamina is led in by a priest. Tamino and Pamina embrace.

PAMINA
My Tamino! O what joy!

TAMINO
My Pamina! O what joy!
Here are the gates of terror
which threaten danger and death for me.

PAMINA
Everywhere I shall
be at your side.
I myself shall lead you;
love guides me.
taking him by the hand
Let it strew the path with roses,
for roses always go with thorns.
You play the magic flute;
may it protect us on our way.
One enchanted hour it was carved
by my father out of the deepest heart
of the thousand-year-old oak,
amidst thunder and lightning, storm and tempest.
Now come and play the flute;
let it guide us on our grim path.

PAMINA, TAMINO
By the power of music we walk
cheerfully through the dark night of death!

THE ARMOURED MEN
By the power of music you walk
cheerfully through the dark night of death!
