Mozart's "Magic Flute" found on beach.

The Magic Flute that inspired Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to compose his opera, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) was found on a Vienna Beach by archaeologist Prof. Anna L. Dallapiccola, Art Historian, formerly Prof. of Art History, South Asian Institute, Heidelberg University.

The archaeologist stated, "I was just walking down the beach with my Ipod listening to 'The Magic Flute,' when suddently I saw it floating in the air near the shore. At first, I wasn't sure of it's origin, but after taking it to the lab and carbon dating the instrument, I beleive we've found the Magic Flute at last."

Professor Dallapiccola noted that when she played the instrument, the behavior of males around her changed.

"This gives further evidence to it's origin," replied the professor.

After completing all the testing and research available, Professor Dallapiccola is planning to lend it to the Smithsonian Institute for a world tour.

"This should be a tremendous find for the art and music worlds," added the professor.
