Band: The Black Mages Song: Darkness and Starlight Release Year: 2008 Why?: I enjoyed Opera Week so much, I added an extra day for you all. This is an entire four part mini-opera entirely in Japanese. The story is simple: two countries are at war, and the general and hero of this one army, Draco, is in love with the princess of his country, Maria. His country loses the war, and the princess is forced to marry the Prince of the winning country, Ralse. At the wedding, the survivors led by Draco surprise Prince Ralse and defeat him after a dramatic duel, and Maria and Draco live happily ever after.
