T w o p r i e s t s impose a vow of silence on Tamino and Papageno. The Three Ladies appear and try to lure them back to the Queen. Tamino and Papageno resist and the Ladies are banished by voices from within the temple. In Sarastro's palace, Monostatos finds Pamina sleeping and desires to kiss her. The Queen of the Night arrives. She gives Pamina a knife and orders her to kill Sarastro. Swearing vengence, the Queen disappears. Monostatos has overheard everything and offers to carry out the deed himself if Pamina repays him with her love. When she rejects Monostatos, he tries to kill her. Sarastro intervenes and comforts Pamina. The ordeals continue. Papageno is confronted by an old woman who claims that she is his beloved, much to Papageno's amusement. She disappears and the Three Spirits arrive, returning the magic flute and bells to Tamino and Papageno, as well as bringing them food and drink. Tamino plays on the flute, which is heard by Pamina, who rushes in joyously. Remembering his vow of silence, Tamino refuses to speak to her. Pamina misinterprets Tamino's silence, falls into despair and prepares to take her own life. Sarastro sends Tamino away to procede with his initiation. He and Pamina are commanded to bid each other a last farewell. Grief-stricken, Pamina tries to kill herself. The Three Spirits appear and reassure her that Tamino's love is true. A priest informs Papageno that he has been denied intiation. Papageno, content to drink and be merry, expresses no regret. He receives another visit from the old woman and, under threat of imprisonment, . agrees to be faithful to her. At that moment she reveals herself to be Papagena: the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately, she is hurried away by a priest before Papageno can embrace her. Two armed guards stand at the entrance to the trials. Tamino is at last joined by Pamina. She takes his hand, tells him to play the flute, and leads him through the gates. Protected by the magic flute, they pass safely through the trials of fire and water. Papageno, lamenting the loss of Papagena, is about to hang himself. The Three Spirits interrupt him and tell him that he can summon his beloved with his magic bells. Papagena reappears. Monastatos has joined the Queen of the Night and the Three Ladies in a final attempt to undermine Sarastro. Their power, however, is broken and thunder and lightning hurl them into darkness. Tamino and Pamina are welcomed into the Temple of the Sun, and the forces of good celebrate their, triumph, while Papageno and Papagena experience the joys of family life.

Professor Hermiston directed a remount of the 2002 production of Massenet's Manon with the Ensemble in Usti nad Labem. In addition, the UBC Ensemble performed Mozart's Die Zauberflote with the Usti Theatre. Both productions will be seen in the Chan Centre this season. Mr. Norbert Baxa, the conductor for the two productions, as well as last year's conductor of The Bartered Bride, will return to lead Manon with renowned Czech tenor Ales Briscein. While in Europe, the UBC Ensemble also appeared in several different concerts with the Teplice Symphony. As a special ending to their tour, they stopped off in Ontario where they performed at the Westben Arts Festival. There they presented Lehar's The Merry Widow. In addition, they sang a concert of operatic excerpts and toured several elementary schools with their children's show Opera Night in Canada. Graduates of the UBC Opera Ensemble will be touring Saskatchewan in October and November with this children's show. The UBC Opera Ensemble's performances in Ontario were so successful that they have been invited back to present Die Zauberflote in the 2004 season. Professor Hermiston will be directing both Die Zauberflote and Manon at UBC, and will travel to Regina, Saskatchewan to direct Rossini's La Cenerentola for Opera Saskatchewan in February before joining the Vancouver Opera to direct their production of Verdi's La Traviata in May. The UBC Opera Ensemble will return to Usti in June of 2004 to mount a production of La Boheme, which Professor Hermiston will direct, as well as a remount of the Usti production of Eugene Onegin, lead by Czech director Martin Otava.
