Papagena, the best bird-catcher ever, has a new mission: just as the guests are arriving for Prince Orlofsky’s big birthday party at the Theater an der Wien, all the preparations start to go wrong. Things vanish, people suddenly pop up in different places, doors are locked, instruments are out of tune and mysterious passages suddenly lead where they shouldn’t. It is all the fault of the mysterious bat who flits through the building. Papagena sets off to hunt it down; with the help of some of the party guests she intends to solve the mystery of the creature and catch it. But Prince Orlofsky is not content just to sit and watch, and sets off with some other guests, determined to find the bat himself. Could it be that he is in cahoots with the bat?
Join the adventure and help put a stop to the bat’s antics to save the party. When you buy your ticket, you can decide whose search party you want to join, Papagena’s or Prince Orlofsky’s. Every route is different and leads through hidden passages, secret rooms, choir room and below-stage: everywhere we encounter more secrets …
Fortunately, we are always accompanied by the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss as well as singers, a choir and a wind and string ensemble.
