This took a while, mostly the part where I farted around trying to figure out how to replicate the sorta voice I heard from Final Fantasy 6's opera, using something with lesser sound capabilities (an FM synth), but I'll stop with my blathers. Here's what to expect for each movement (because I'm not classically trained, and I'm only giving my personal interpretation of an opera):
Part I: The Overture (expect varying speeds and the introduction of a leitmotif (0:00-5:30)
Part 2: I. Mäßig und Schnell : “Moodful Lament” (this is where you'll hear some "singing")The tempo, or bpm here is "moderate and fast" (5:30-7:43)
Part 3: II. Interlude- Solitary- Langsam Zu Einem Trauernden Geführt. This one is very slow and is what I might consider sounding "funeral-ish" (7:43-10:59)
Part 4: "Abstract"- Contains slower variants of previously played parts and at much quieter tone (10:59-16:26)
Part 5: "Resolution" A livelier bit with a variation of one of the earlier introduced themes (16:26-19:15)
Part 6: "Finale" -A variation consisting of most of the previously introduced themes, starting loud and eventually going very quiet (19:15-23:31)
I'll admit I might've fudged up the parenthesized time-stamps, but it should be close enough (if all else fails, look for the spaces where there's no sound in the soundthingy which I'm too lazy to properly label).
Used Beepbox and Audacity for sound
