A few years ago, the celebrated sage Sarastronauta decided to move to a space station, hoping to have the peace and quiet necessary for his incessant search for wisdom. The trick he found to attract men into his world of virtue and wisdom was to create a character called Papageno. Like the original Papageno, it is also captivating due to its fun way of being and talking. His disguise as Papageno is so perfect that not even Pamina, Sarastronaut’s own daughter, recognizes him. This double personality also allows him to obtain precious information from his daughter Pamina regarding his mother, the Queen of the Night. When Tamino appears on the scene, Papageno is precisely with Pamina, and his fascination with the girl is immediate. Trying to know where to find her, Papageno shows her the way to the Orbital Station where she lives with her father, the great sage Sarastronauta. That is, himself. Sarastronaut will not miss this opportunity to bring with him another human soul in need of salvation by wisdom. And you will also find an exquisite son-in-law.
