Die Gefühle sind selbst diesem unziemlichen Versuch inhärent: "Alles fühlt der Liebe Freuden". Doch ist die europäische Industrie alleine noch kraftvoll genug, diesen Versuch einer sich deklassierenden Macht abzuweisen. Die Königin der Nacht läßt Monostatos zurückprallen. Aber Paminas Erklärung, daß sich Tamino den Eingeweihten gewidmet habe, zeigt wiederum die Grenzen des Wachstums des Einflusses der Königin der Nacht: "Nun bist Du auf ewig mir entrissen". Die entscheidende Tragik des Kampfes um Einfluß, Fortschritt und Herrschaft enthüllt sich in dieser Szene, in der die Mutter erkennen muß: "Deine Mutter kann Dich nicht mehr schützen"; 64 eine Erfahrung, die Eltern seit Generationen machen müssen, und die gleichzeitig in resignativem Schmerz kaum zu übertreffen ist.

Deutlich ist der Hinweis auf Leistungsdruck und Aussichtslosigkeit einer effizient produzierenden US-Welt, deren einzige menschliche Manifestationen sich in Sex & Crime-Allegorien zu erschöpfen scheinen. Die Fesselung durch Monostatos und damit die symbolische Fesselung von Innovation und freier Schöpferkraft beantwortet Pamina mit dem Todeswunsch. Papageno rettet sie durch seine Natürlichkeit und gibt ihr neue Hoffnung als Abgesandter der sternflammenden Königin. Die Innigkeit der folgenden Szene zwischen den gesellschaftlich so verschiedenen Repräsentanten des Abendlandes, Pamina und Papageno, ist von vielen Interpreten des dritten und vierten Standes zunächst als musikalischer Emanzipationsversuch gedeutet worden.

Von der Antike bis zur letzten Jahrhundertwende waren Goldumlaufswährungen üblich - das heißt Gold diente nicht nur als allgemeines Münzmetall, das im Handelsverkehr dominierte, sondern auch als WertaufbewahrungsmitteL Der Reichtum eines Staates und seine Macht bemaßen sich nach der Menge des Goldes, das seinem Herrscher zu Gebote stand. War der Staatsschatz jedoch aufgebraucht, konnte diese Tatsache das gesamte Staatswesen erschüttern und in Gefahr bringen. Goethe beschreibt in zwei Szenen des Faust II die prekäre Lage der Staatsfinanzen an einem mittelalterlichen kaiserlichen Hof, die den Kanzler, den Heermeister, den Schatzmeister und den Marschall zu Beratungen mit dem Kaiser zusammengeführt hat.
