Alternate Versions. Rate This. Now, at this point something very interesting happens. Tamino, and the audience, discover that Sarastro is no evil-doer at all, but a Priest of the Sun, a Holy Man, and that the Queen of the Night is a false and treacherous woman who has plotted against him.
This might sound a bit puzzling, and it has indeed puzzled musicologists since The Magic Flute was first performed, but it is in a way typical of the reversal of values that is said to take place as we leave the subjective consciousness of Yesod, the Moon-consciousness, and enter the objective solar consciousness of Tifaret.
Tamino is simply advancing on his path of initiation. He is leaving the shadowy, ever-shifting world of Yesod, and is preparing to fully enter the higher consciousness of Tifaret.
The priest has left Tamino at the gate. He decides to play his flute — perhaps its magic will lead him to her — and after a few moments he hears Papagenos pipes in reply.
A procession appears: Sarastro comes riding a chariot, drawn by six lions — the symbolism of this is perfectly obvious: six is the number of Tifaret; lions are solar symbols as well as symbols of royalty.
There is no doubt about it: all this symbolism shows us that Sarastro is the Higher Self, or, as Kabbalists term it, the Neschamah.
Sarastro sentences Monostatos to receive 77 strokes of the bastinado. Tamino and Papageno are taken into the Temple of Trial to be purified, and the First Act ends with a chorus:.
When virtue and justice have strewn the path of the great with glory, Then will the earth be the kingdom of heaven And mortals will be like gods!
The second act begins with another march as the College of Priests process into a courtyard inside the Temple of the Sun.
There is a grove of palm trees — symbols of victory — with golden leaves. There is reason to assume that the palm trees stand in for akacias, which have a deep symbolic significance within Freemasonry.
There are also eighteen seats or sieges; on each siege stands a pyramid and a large black horn, set in gold.
The pyramids puzzled me a great deal, until someone remarked that the 18 four-sided pyramids make a total of 72 sides, which is the number of the Schemhamforasch, the Great Name of God, which is inextricably linked to the Rosicrucian Mysteries.
Each priest is holding a palm read, akacia twig in his hand. Sarastro opens the meeting, saying,. Tamino, who is waiting at the Northern Gate of the Temple, is yearning to be free of the veil of the night, he wants to behold the sanctuary of Light.
We also learn that Pamina is destined for Tamino, and that this is the real reason for her abduction from the Queen of the Night, who is described as being full of deceit, seeking to mislead the people with illusion and superstition — glamour or maya — typical properties of an unbalanced Yesod.
Also note that the Moon Temple is served only by women, and the Sun Temple only by men. Thus, what we have got here is actually a polarity between the Moon and the Sun, between the subconscious and the conscious — and the Age of Enlightenment was very much in favour of the conscious mind as a guiding principle.
Therefore, Reason, as symbolised by the Sun, was perceived as the only alternative. Thus she is, in fact, the daughter of the Moon and the Sun: pure alchemy.
And by the way, during the priestly deliberations we hear, three times, the initiation trombones sound their three-chord fanfare.
Meanwhile, Tamino and Papageno are brought into a dark chamber by two priests. Papageno is afraid. He is willing to undergo any ordeal, no matter how painful, in order to win Pamina.
On being promised a young pretty Papagena who matches him in everything, he is prepared to at least attempt the ordeal of silence.
They are told that they will be left alone, and that they, no matter what happens, may not speak. If they do, all is lost. The first test is to be able to resist the guiles of women: this is the beginning of wisdom.
To modern ears this sounds decidedly sexist, so let me rephrase it slightly. The beginning of wisdom is to be able to liberate yourself from being dominated by the forces of the subjective and subconsious mind as represented by the Moon.
It also has to do with controlling your sexuality; the Initiate is not ruled by his passions. There is nothing wrong with having passions, not at all, but to advance on the Path, your passions must not control you, you must rule over them; you must not suppress them, but rule them wisely.
Note, also, that Tamino and Papageno are not being told to give up women: it is a simply a test, and as such is limited in time.
Neither are women decried anywhere in the text, nor is the female principle. We are simply talking about aspects of the soul. It has nothing to do with physical gender.
This is extremely important in all occultism. Suddenly, the Tree Ladies appear, seemingly out of nowhere. They try everything in order to make Tamino and Papageno speak to them.
Papageno, who has no self-control, can barely keep himself from talking; Tamino constantly has to tell him to shut up. Away with the women to Hell!
The Ladies vanish, but the Queen of Night is still at large in the Temple…. She is furious because Tamino has chosen to become an Initiate of the Sun.
Otherwise she will forever be disowned. So, the forces of Night are indeed threatening to overtake the Realms of the Sun.
So, an uprush of subconscious force, working through the anima of the candidate, is threatening to flood the conscious mind, thereby cutting off all contact with the superconscious levels of Tifaret.

They give Papageno magic bells for protection, telling him to go with Tamino. The ladies introduce three child-spirits, who will guide Tamino and Papageno to Sarastro's temple.

She answers that they must tell the truth. Sarastro enters, with a crowd of followers. Pamina falls at Sarastro's feet and confesses that she tried to escape because Monostatos had forced his attentions on her.

Monostatos tells Sarastro that he caught Papageno and Pamina trying to escape, and demands a reward. Sarastro, however, punishes Monostatos for his lustful behaviour toward Pamina, and sends him away.
