Travel to a mythical land somewhere between the sun and the moon where Prince Tamino embarks on a mission to rescue Pamina, the Queen of the Night’s beautiful daughter. As he and his sidekick Papageno set off to find the evil kidnapper Sarastro, they’re given a magic flute and silver bells to ensure their safety.

The adventure that follows allows Tamino to discover truth, find his love and earn blessings for the triumph of courage, virtue and wisdom.
