    Timo Tolkki (guitarist/songwriter for Stratovaruis) created a metal opera called Saana - Warrior of Light. Part One which was released on March 14, 2008. It features a number of guest vocalists, including soprano Jennifer Sowle in the lead role, as well as Aino Laos, Janette Sainio and Heikki Pöyhiä of Twilightning in other roles.

    Saana - Warrior of Light is Timo Tolkki's third solo album

    One of my favorite pieces is THE LETTER which opens up tracks 12-14 here.

    So dude, I listened to this and before the halfway point I was kind of like "Oh this is nice" but right at that halfway point I love the way it picks up and them it picks up even more so I could hear the metal elements! Really cool song! :grinthumb

    Yeah I know what you mean...I really wanted to find a better clip of "The Letter" but it's all linked to one album.

    There is this nice clip here that I wanted to embed

    But here is the album

    Easy to order LG :grinthumb

    It takes a couple listens...but it grows on you quick...of course a hard copy and a good system is much better than youtube clips. :grinthumb
