The composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - as a marionette - leads through his opera in a child-friendly way. Konstanze, a young Spaniard, her English maid Blonde and the servant Pedrillo have been deported to a slave market after a pirate robbery. Bassa Selim, a native Spaniard, once a Christian and now Muslim, buys all three of them. They now live in his palace by the sea. The Spanish nobleman Belmonte, Konstanze´s fiancé, has after months finally learned of the whereabouts of his beloved and sets sail to rescue the abductees.
