favorite opera music in a videogame

hey there people of the escapist! what is your favorite peice of opera music in a videogame? and before everyone says it, ill just put a shout out to final fantasy 7 one winged angel.

but my favourite peice is from fable one, it sounds very dark but calming at the same time, its the song in the guild http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcL_aDweGPM&feature=related

Command and conquer red alert 3 had so much...

sorry for the double thread guys just stay on this one instead

The music that is played in the SC: Brood War intro.

Was there really any other option?(Well... I guess there is since some have already been posted...)

why does that sound VERY similar to aeris theme in FF7 at the start, i swear they borrowed from it

Well, the Opera song takes from Celes' theme song which Aeris' theme was quite similar to. FFVII also used bits from Exdeath's theme in FF5 for Those Chosen By The Planet and One Winged Angel.

Ooh, okay, here we go. Runner-ups first.

And the winner is...

EDIT: Ah, ninja'd for the last one. Dang it. Still, beautiful song. Holy crap, I love it.

Easily, the Bioshock soundtrack

Powerful stuff.

I see your post and quote it with my own upload of the same clip! Yah Ka Ka Ka Ka!

... Can you count? If so you would know that 6 came before 7... Aeris' theme borrowed HEAVILY from Aria de Mezzo Carattere. Also I tried my best to fix your post. Please use punctuation. Also Aria De Mezzo Carattere from the Grand Finale soundtrack is by far the best. One-Winged Angel cannot even come to a fraction of how good any of the songs are in Grand Finale.

Copied from the other topic since I put some actual effort into remembering and finding these songs. >.>

If you want simply operatic music, then here's a few of my favorites from games.

Not strictly operatic, but certainly in the same vein although instrumental:

And say what you will about the game, but as mentioned, World of Warcraft has absolutely amazing music. Listen to this stuff...

Who does the music for Blizzard I wonder, is it all in-house or do they have a group of go-to musicians they hire? Whoever they are they're fantastic. And there's tons of it too, like literally hundreds of songs in WOW alone, who creates this stuff?

Enjoy!

I's got to be the Opera House level from Hitman Blood Money because A) it's a great level, and B) it's the only example I can think of.

I'll go classic here:

*sniff* So beautiful.

Cant beat Jeremy Soule

Dragon Age had surprisingly good music, I thought.

I have two VERY great songs:

Final Fantasy XIII-Born Anew (Penultimate Boss Battle Music)

Final Fantasy XIII-Fighting Fate (Barthandelus Boss Battle Music)

Anything in Medal of Honor:Frontline, loved that soundtrack.
