What is a Majora’s Mask Opera?

Majora

Yeah, I should have started with this…

Imagine there are only three days left to live, as the moon is on a course of collision with the world.

Imagine there is a young man who, among all the people who either ignore the incoming doom, refuse to believe it or are sadly resigned to it, has promised to marry the love of his life.

Imagine his unique symbol of their union, like our wedding rings, is gone, stolen.

Imagine he is determined to get it back and get married, regardless of the world’s fate.

These are elements from the game The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, by Nintendo, released in 2000.

I find the dark ambient of this game and the moving plot of these two characters as beacons of hope and trust amidst all the fray to be very engaging, and very fitting of an opera.

Developing on the beautiful themes composed by Koji Kondo and Toru Minegishi, I have started writing it last year, and I will keep you updated on my progress on this blog with previews, demos, thoughts and answers to questions you might want to pose (and that I might be able to answer).

In fact, expect a first Q&A post soon!
