A telling of the story of The Magic Flute for 3-9 year olds with magic, music, puppets, masks and integrated sign language. The Queen Of The Night first appears as the Queen of Spades in a card trick, and returns in many guises: a silk cloth, puppets of different sizes, a monster who dominates the entire set, and - here - a masked actor.
