View Full Version : So, what did you think of the Opera Scene in FFVI?

I've been playing FFVI for several years now, but for those in PAL territories who've only just got this brillant game, I'm curious. What did you think about the Opera Scene? Me, I LOVED it (but then, I love classical music anyway). It has the right balance of drama, tension and comedy, plus it provided an interesting mini-game in trying to remember the lines. Plus, with Ultros' attempts to 'flatten' out the singing, injected a bit of tension and comedy into the story. And on top of that, the FMV of the scene in FF Anthology was even better. Celes reminded me a lot of Garnet in that dress, (o..ooo). All it needed was a fully orchestrated soundtrack, like the version on my FF N Generation CD. So what do you think about this brillant scene?

Some classic FFVI quotes:

"I'm a general! Not some opera floozy!" Celes, annoyed at Locke's idea for her to take the place of Maria the opera singer, FFVI.

"You're not from around here!...You look kinda....dorky!" Man at the Jidoor Auction House, FFVI.

"Wait he says. Do I look like a waiter?" Kefka, FFVI.

"Call me a treasure hunter or I'll rip your lungs out!!" Locke, annoyed at everyone's insistence of calling him a 'thief', FFVI.

I loved it too... It's one of my favorite scenes. The song was beautiful. (If you chose the correct lines and go up the stairs at the right time, oh course... otherwise it's totally disaster :D) It brought to my mind 'I want to be you Canary' from FFIX. The plot was a little same like. I, accually, was already sure there wouldn't be so touching scenes as in the others,(expect when Cyan saw his family to go to Phantom train... It was kinda sad) but the opera proved I was wrong, and I was happy for it. And I was even happier when there came more of them. They're always important part of the game :)

I thought it was quite rubbish, there was'nt anything great about it. Apart from when Ultros interuppted, I had to fight him then thats when it got interesting.

I don't like that part 1 bit. Quite annoying if you ask me. The only good part was It wasn't that difficult.

The opera was the coolest shit in any Final Fantasy. I have the orchestrated version. How can you say it was boaring? Damn thats like the high point of the first half of the game.
