Conducted by the great James Levine, this is a 2006 production by The Metropolitan Opera of the magical and wonderful fairy tale -- Mozart's Die Zauberflote. This Julie Taymor production is noteworthy for the wonderful costumes and staging.
The story begins with the rescue of Prince Tamino from a deadly serpent and then his rescue of the Princess Tamino who is held by the the evil Queen of the Night. Tamino and Papagenda must undergo trials of water and fire but are aided by the eponymous magic flute. Papageno (pictured above) is promised a little wife if he can keep silent during the trials (a most difficult feat for him.
This opera contains amazing music including the famous aria by the Queen of the Night, "Der Hoelle Rache" which includes the highest notes possible in music and the duet by Papagena and Papgeno, "Pa Pa Pa...".
To prepare you for this delight, here's is a 3 minute animated version of the story by Classical MPR.
