Final Fantasy VI - The Opera

Ask any RPG playing gamer what one of the most memorable scenes in Final Fantasy 6 was and they will mention the Opera House.

This scene has everything - Celes(my personal fav =-), interactive lyrics,
Ultros(bwahahaha), the introduction of a new PC,
and, for the time, an amazing
musical score.

Without further ado, I present you with the Opera Lyrics....


Impressario:
The West and the East were waging war. . .
Draco, the West's great hero, thinks of his love, Maria.
Is she safe? Is she waiting?

Draco:
Oh Maria!
Oh Maria!
How I long to be with you!

Impressario:
The forces of the West fell,
and Maria's castle was taken.
Prince Ralse, of the East,
took her hand by force,
but she never stopped yearning for Draco. . .

Maria:
Oh my hero, so far away now.
Will I ever see your smile?
Love goes away, like night into day.
It's just a fading dream.
I'm the darkness, you're the stars.
Our love is brighter than the sun.
For eternity, for me there can be,
Only you, my chosen one. . .
Must I forget you? Our solem promise?
Will autumn take the place of spring?
What shall I do? I'm lost without you.
Speak to me once more!

Draco:
Come, Maria, follow my lead.

Maria:
We must part now, my life goes on.
but my heart won't give you up.
Ere I walk away, let me hear you say,
I meant as much to you. . .
So gently, you touched my heart.
I will be forever yours.
Come what may, I won't age a day,
I'll wait for you, always. . .

::Maria picks up the flowers and throws them from the balcony::
