F.A.Q.

Where is Link?

Link will not be present in the opera. The main protagonist is Kafei and his search for the Sun Mask. You can read details about why here.

If you want a canon placement of the opera’s story (minus the slight alterations in Kafei’s path) you can place it in any timeline except for the child’s, since by the time Link wakes up seven years older in Ocarina of Time, Termina is long gone.

.

Will Kafei simply replace Link’s role?

No. He is a regular Terminan. He is way more limited than Link, and his incursion throughout the lands of Termina is influenced by those limitations.

.

Will this remain this way, as shadows behind a veil?

No. It is an opera. It is  intended to be staged, with sets, singers, costumes, an orchestra, etc.

.

Are those the definitive singers and cast?

No. They are friends and colleagues who are kindly helping me promote the work.

.

I thought Captain Viscen and the Monkey were male?

They are. It is just common in operatic settings to have a young male be played by a female singer, and I did this especially to use a broader spectrum of voices in certain numbers. Those characters can also be played by countertenors.

.

Does the Monkey die?

No. That was just a way to end the demo with a bang.

.

How do you pronounce Bulteau?

For English speakers: BOOL – TOE.

The u in Bul actually sounds like ü, but I’ve noticed it’s hard for many people to do that sound, so let’s leave it at that.

You make a great zombie.

I got the moves like Jagger.

    That last point made me lol! You got the moves alright~

  2. Of course, every aspect of Majora Mask’s plot and narrative is important and the story of Anju and Kafei is a really good choice for building an opera around it due to its classic tropes that are used.
    So I wonder if you plan to incorporate the, as I think, most important theme of the story: the loss of and longing for friendship (Skullkid).

    Anyway, I’m really looking forward to see the results! You are doing a great job so far.

  3. Will the Great Fairies be in the opera at all? They’re role was fairly significant in the story as well, I would love to see at least one!

  4. Do you know what Nintendo thinks of this? Are you afraid they won’t be happy that you plan on making an Opera that will make you money? Or do you plan on this not making any money at all?

  5. The other masks will have any play on the opera? And are you going to use Kamaro’s song? That song is just AMAZING.

  6. Declan Maguire Says:

    Your English is grammatically correct and seems fluent, but can be somewhat cheesy. Do you ever come into difficulty writing the lyrics due to being Portuguese, or is this common for all opera lyrics?

  7. You are doing a wonderful job! I love this concept, though I was cautious when I first heard it. If you ever need help with writing, just to help the project move faster, I will be able to help. I know you probably hear that a lot though. Are you accepting help in aspects of writing lyrics and what not? Even if it is something simple, I think it would be an awesome experience to help on this

  8. Hello there,

    I think this is a fantastic idea and I would love to sing in this piece or have the opportunity to audition for it. My name is Adrian Rosales and I’m a high lyric baritone as well as a big Zelda fan.

    Please check out my website at:

    Hopefully we can work together sometime!

    Best,
    Adrian

  9. Hi Miguel, I was just wondering. I made a fan poster of sorts for your opera. How can I get it to you? I will post it soon on deviantart, but I would like for you to see it very much. (Also, do you answer all these questions yourself? Or did you take the monkey from the Deku King, and now he answers all your questions?) xD

    Majora’s Mask related works have a tendency to be fully funded by fans on kickstarter, and your work is looking amazing so far. You should really look into it if you haven’t done it already. http://www.kickstarter.com

    Abraços do Brasil.

  11. Just coming by to say I find it fantastic that you decided to focus on Kafei and leave Link outside the play. I think Kafei and Anju’s drama is one of the most sentimental stories in the Zelda series.

    Finding out about your project completely made my day. Thank you and keep up the good work!

  12. Will Cremia’s feelings towards Kafei (or possibly, Anju) be addressed? What about the entire Romani Ranch plot–especially the aliens? Any appearance from the Garo or other undead of Ikana?
