I’m not a man of many words,
But something helps me pull in birds.
It’s not my looks that give them thrills,
Must be the music of my pills.
The girls of Washington, D.C.

Call me the King of Ecstasy…

– Papageno

Inspired by Mozart’s Magic Flute, The Electric Flute is a present-day fairy tale, set in the inferno of Washington DC, where excessive lust and ruthless politics paint The White House red.
