Papagenina is the daughter of Papageno and Papagena of Magic Flute fame. For her 13th birthday she is given the Magic Flute. To learn to use the instrument she visits her remote ancestor, Ole’pa. Still too inexperienced, and while trying to conjure up her Prince, she ‘creates’ the Queen of the Night by mistake. The play develops from there.
It has been produced very successfully by young people.
