The Metal Opera Pt. II - Story

Post by Raul on 4/14/2008, 18:33

SYNOPSIS


This summary continues where the story had been interrupted at the end of Avantasia part one. It leaves out some details and it is kept as brief as possible for better understanding of the story and less confusion amongst the listeners. Some of the tracks are quite symbolic and can stand on their own as well. No one (especially those who are in touch with good lawyers) was particularly meant to be offended, lyrics are free for individual interpretation. The full detailed story is far too long and because it would be beyond the scope of this booklet we tried to concentrate on the basic pillar.

ACT 2


Scene 3:


While Gabriel has been taken away from the battlefields around the tower, bringing back the seals, the three clerics - pope, bishop and Jakob -cannot believe they have failed. The voice in the tower screams and swears and the three become afraid of 'God's' wrath.

During the following days, while being in Sesidhbana Gabriel realizes more and more about what is going on and about the importance of what he's done. How much influence the dark force in the tower has on its unsuspecting servants, reaping souls of those who believe without calling anything in doubt; perhaps not intentionally but still... (THE SEVEN ANGELS)

Spending some time in Sesidhbana, the beautiful part of Avantasia, Gabriel decides to get to know more about the spiritual world, this beautiful non-materialistic part of existence. (NO RETURN)

After having talked to Elderane about his desire Gabriel gets told that he may find the answers to his questions at the Tree of Knowledge and as a reward for his help the elves offer him to bring him to the Tree of Knowledge, to get answers and views that may help him, but might confuse him as well. Whatever the truth may be like. Driven by an inner longing for wisdom and truth and of course curiosity he accepts. When he finally stands in front of the tree he finds a lovely but quite cynic being that confuses Gabriel even more than anything he had ever been before. (THE LOOKING GLASS)

Sometimes you have to plunge into troubled waters to come out purified. (IN QUEST FOR)

After telling Gabriel carefully that there is no reason to break down because of not being able to understand everything, while he still shall try to open his eyes as wide as possible to learn as much as possible, new views reveal something to Gabriel.

The lake which the tree is standing next to begins to become choppier. The sky turns darker and the waves get bigger. Immediately the lake seems to come alive. Screaming faces appear in the waves and Gabriel cannot believe his eyes when he hears Jakob's voice yelling at him while Gabriel recognizes a young face in the waves looking a bit like Jakob, but much younger. A moment later he realizes that it's not Jakob's younger brother, but Jakob himself in his early years. (THE FINAL SACRIFICE)


Scene 4:


Meanwhile the three clerics rove aimlessly through the wastelands of Avantasia, searching for the guy who stole the seals and wondering if their roaming through that 'kind of hell' is just God's punishment for their failure. Being quite aware of and not seeing anything bad about the fact that some people know more than other people... For some it may be better to know less and just believe. Otherwise things would maybe get out of order. (NEVERLAND)


Scene 5 :


Meanwhile Gabriel determines to - no matter how much he wants to go home and help Anna and how much he misses her - comply with the entreaty of the 'young' Jakob and free the part of his soul that might have been stolen from him slowly but surely years ago which is being imprisoned under Rome now. (ANYWHERE)

Back in Sesidhbana Gabriel talks to Elderane about his ambition to free Jakob's soul.

Elderane doesn't want Gabriel to waste his life, but finally tells him all that he knows about the hallways under Rome, knowing quite well that freeing those souls under Rome could help the Avantasian's in their war against the armies of the dark force that take all their power by sucking it out those souls. Elderane tells Gabriel what to take care of, about a beast in stone guarding a golden chalice filled with the souls that had been reaped during the ages, the chalice with all the souls that give strength to the evil force in the tower.

Although being warned Gabriel and Regrin take one of the seals to unlock the gate from Avantasia to Rome and depart for another journey.

Having arrived in Rome the two pass the gate to the materialistic world to sneak through the endless hallways under the city until they arrive at a big hall with an unbelievably huge chalice in the center. With their combined effort they manage to knock down the chalice and they feel immediately that something magical is filling the room. Millions of souls escape from the chalice, through the building in all directions.

It takes a few moments until one of the walls starts to move and the beast carved into the wall comes alive; chasing as many scared souls as possible back into the chalice while trying to catch Gabriel and the slow short-legged dwarf, the latter with success. While Gabriel reaches the gate back to Avantasia and locks the door behind himself, wondering if Jakob's soul managed to come free, the dwarf doesn't make it and gets killed by the beast. But although Gabriel feels responsible for Regrin's death and although he doesn't know if Jakob's soul has been rescued, it has been a success for Avantasia. Back in Sesidhbana he is told, that a lot of power has been taken away from the dark forces due to their loss of many souls which also has an influence on the battle that rages around the dark tower. (CHALICE OF AGONY)

That evening Gabriel is sent back into the world of flesh and blood into his body that is still lying next to Lugaid.

ACT 3


Scene 1:


Both sleep one more night to free Anna in Mainz the morning after. Since Lugaid has been supported by Gabriel all the time and Anna must be in prison still, he commands Gabriel to set off to the druid's home. It may be too dangerous back in Mainz and so Gabriel is given instructions how to make it to Ireland. The druid promises to do everything he can to free Anna. Not really pleased but accepting the druid's authority Gabriel follows the instructions.


Scene 2:


Together with some men he hires in a tavern Lugaid returns back to Mainz working out a plan to free Anna.

During one of the following nights, when they arrive at the tower, Anna's prison, they find an open door. Jakob is already there, willing to free Anna. The monk is really confused about what he is doing, a thousand thoughts and questions on his mind, feeling reborn and fresh and yet confused and sad. Lugaid tells Anna about Gabriel and where the one has been sent by him in brief words. There is no chance to say a lot because from outside they hear voices and noises. As they help Anna to climb out of one of the little windows in the wall, Lugaid runs to the door to take a look out there. In that moment Falk and some men step in and knock down the druid out of their way. The druid dies. Someone must have seen something and called the bailiff. After looking around for a moment the bailiff takes his rapier and strides quickly into the direction of Jakob, who takes one of the iron tools next to him to defend himself. Blinded by rage, being like hypnotized and not paying attention the bailiff gets the iron plunged into his chest... (MEMORY)

Although even during this night guards and soldiers haven been turning Mainz upside down to find the fugitive, Anna has not been found by them anymore...


Scene 3: - End


(INTO THE UNKNOWN)
