Against his better judgement Tom Henderson (Warren Christie) is cast as the lead in "The Magic Flute." Overwhelmed by the genius of the score, he fantasizes the opera in his mind in order to live up to the role. During rehearsal, he becomes obsessed with his mysterious co-star, Masha, an unknown Russian soprano of extraordinary talent. Tom's interest in Masha becomes backstage intrigue as fantasy crosses into reality. The drama begins to parallel the opera's underlying spiritual fable in an elaborate musical spectacle.
