General Leo Edition: Opera Redux

Gentle Reader,

I'm preparing to release Version 3.1 of the General Leo Edition hack.  This will essentially be the final version, though I never entirely close the book on a project.

I've always been reluctant to edit the opera sequence because it is so iconic.  Yet, it always bothered me that, despite the quality of Woolsey's translation, he's no poet, and the opera lyrics are decidedly un-operatic.

With my rewrite, I tried to bring an appropriate level of grandeur to the lyrics while maintaining the original theme and tone, and also tying it all back to Final Fantasy in a cool way.  Hope you like it!

Ever Yours,
