A magical drama is about to unfold as Tamino waits for the command to go into battle on a perilous journey in pursuit of love, light and peace. In the ensuing chaos on the brink of this strategic battle he is suddenly transported to a twilight world caught between dream and nightmare where he is rescued from certain death by a trio of field nurses.
What follows is a spectacular musical adventure in which the destiny of a pair of young lovers may help determine the fate of nations and the lives of millions.
