Act I
A mythical land between the sun and the moon. Three ladies in the service of the Queen of the Night save Prince Tamino from a serpent. When they leave to tell the queen, the birdcatcher Papageno appears. He boasts to Tamino that it was he who killed the creature. The ladies return to give Tamino a portrait of the queen’s daughter, Pamina, who they say has been enslaved by the evil Sarastro. Tamino immediately falls in love with the girl’s picture. The queen, appearing in a burst of thunder, tells Tamino about the loss of her daughter and commands him to rescue her. The ladies give a magic flute to Tamino and silver bells to Papageno to ensure their safety on the journey and appoint three spirits to guide them.

Sarastro’s slave Monostatos pursues Pamina but is frightened away by Papageno. The birdcatcher tells Pamina that Tamino loves her and is on his way to save her. Led by the three spirits to the temple of Sarastro, Tamino learns from a high priest that it is the Queen, not Sarastro, who is evil. Hearing that Pamina is safe, Tamino charms the wild animals with his flute, then rushes off to follow the sound of Papageno’s pipes. Monostatos and his men chase Papageno and Pamina but are left helpless when Papageno plays his magic bells. Sarastro enters in great ceremony. He punishes Monostatos and promises Pamina that he will eventually set her free. Pamina catches a glimpse of Tamino, who is led into the temple with Papageno.

第一幕
在太陽與月亮之間的神秘土地,三位侍奉夜之女王的侍女把他米奴王子從一條蛇那裡救走。她們離開向女王匯報時,捕鳥人帕帕吉奴出現。他向他米奴吹噓是自己把蛇殺死。侍女們回來把女王之女帕蜜娜的畫像交給他米奴,並說她被邪惡的薩拉斯妥奴役。他米奴立即愛上了畫中人。女王在一聲雷鳴中現身,告訴他米奴她失去了女兒的痛苦,並命令他拯救她的女兒。侍女們把一支魔笛送給他米奴及把銀鈴送給帕帕吉奴,確保他們在旅途中安全,並指派三個聖靈為他們引路。

薩拉斯妥的奴隸追蹤帕蜜娜,但被帕帕吉奴嚇退。捕鳥人告訴帕蜜娜他米奴愛上了她,並正在趕來營救她。他米奴在三個聖靈的帶領下來到薩拉斯妥的神殿,卻從大祭司口中得知邪惡的是女王,而非薩拉斯妥。聽到帕蜜娜安全後,他米奴用他的笛對野生動物們施咒,然後跑向傳來帕帕吉奴的銀鈴聲的方向。摩羅史達多斯和他的手下追捕帕帕吉奴和帕蜜娜, 但當帕帕吉奴奏響銀鈴時他們完全毫無招架能力。薩拉斯妥在盛大的儀式下進場。他懲罰摩羅史達多斯並答應終會放走帕蜜娜。帕蜜娜瞥見與帕帕吉奴一同被領進神殿的他米奴。

Act II
Sarastro tells the priests that Tamino will undergo initiation rites. Monostatos tries to kiss the sleeping Pamina but is surprised by the appearance of the Queen of the Night. The Queen gives her daughter a dagger and orders her to murder Sarastro.

Sarastro finds the desperate Pamina and consoles her, explaining that he is not interested in vengeance. Tamino and Papageno are told by a priest that they must remain silent and are not allowed to eat, a vow that Papageno immediately breaks when he takes a glass of water from a flirtatious old lady. When he asks her name, she vanishes. The three spirits guide Tamino through the rest of his journey and tell Papageno to be quiet. Tamino remains silent even when Pamina appears. Misunderstanding his action for coldness, she is heartbroken.

The priests inform Tamino that he has only two more trials to complete his initiation. Papageno, who has given up on entering the brotherhood, longs for a wife instead. He eventually settles for the old lady. When he promises to be faithful she is suddenly transformed into a beautiful young Papagena, then immediately disappears. Pamina and Tamino are reunited and face the ordeals of water and fire together, protected by the magic flute.

Desperate to be without a wife, Papageno tries to hang himself on a tree but is saved by the three spirits, who remind him that if he uses his magic bells he will find true happiness. When he plays the bells, Papagena appears and the two immediately start making family plans. The Queen of the Night, her three ladies, and Monostatos attack the temple but are defeated and banished. Sarastro blesses Pamina and Tamino as all join in hailing the triumph of courage, virtue, and wisdom.

第二幕
薩拉斯妥告訴祭師們他米奴將進行加入儀式。摩羅史達多斯想趁機親吻在睡夢中的帕蜜娜,但卻驚訝地看見夜之女王出現。女王將把匕首交給她的女兒,要女兒殺死薩拉斯妥。

薩拉斯妥發現絕望的帕蜜娜並安撫她,解釋自己並無意復仇。一名祭師告知他米奴和帕帕吉奴他們必須保持沉默,而且不可進食。帕帕吉奴立即便違背了誓言,從一位妖艷的老太太手中取了一杯水。當他詢問她的名字時,老太太便消失不見。三個聖靈在餘下的路途繼續引領他米奴,並叫帕帕吉奴保持安靜。帕蜜娜出現時他米奴仍然保持沉默,令帕蜜娜誤會他對自己很冷淡而心碎。

祭司們告知他米奴,只要通過兩個考驗他便能正式加入他們。已放棄加入的帕帕吉奴則渴望得到一位妻子來取代。最後他接受了老太太。當他承諾會對忠誠待她時,她突然變身為年輕美麗的帕帕吉娜,然後立即消失了。帕蜜娜和他米奴重逢,在魔笛的保護下一同面對水與火的考驗。

因沒有妻子而絕望的帕帕吉奴嘗試在樹上吊頸自殺,但被三個聖靈救下,並提醒他只要使用銀鈴便能找到幸福。當他奏響銀鈴時,帕帕吉娜出現,二人便立即開始計劃家庭。 夜之女王、她的侍女們和摩羅史達多斯攻擊神殿,但被擊敗並驅逐。薩拉斯妥祝福帕蜜娜和他米奴,所有人都加入歌頌勇氣、美德和智慧的勝利。
