  Aria (1987)
Aria "bombed" badly when it was first released - I left the cinema feeling that, despite many interesting sequences, I would not want to see it again.
This suggests both that the main appeal of opera lies in the music rather than the libretto; and that opera lovers are more ready to associate the arias with the emotions which the individual film directors are attempting to arouse, even when these are not those of the original opera.
A more helpful approach seems to be listing those aspects of life that the ten directors felt were brought to the forefront of their attention when they first studied their aria, and subsequently attempted to interpret visually in their segments.

  Advanced Robotics Interface for Applications
ARIA communicates with the robot via a client/server relationship, either using a serial connection (to talk to the robot) or a TCP/IP connection (to talk to a simulator).
ARIA can also be used to read sensors and drive the robot with custom actions; to merely send and receive commands; or simply to control the serial port.
The built-in actions of ARIA are all resolved strictly based on priority, but the default action resolver is highly flexible, so that a system using straight summation could be easily implemented with your own actions.

ARIA has achieved the status of a legend in Russia and the surrounding countries throughout the past 20 years (Germany, for tours sometimes as well), but has never got much attention elsewhere.
In that same year, ARIA signs a five year contract with company "MOROZ Records"; one of its results becomes the major release in the 1994 of all the five previous albums of the band (including the unreleased "Megalomania" and "Who Are You With?").

  Aria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An aria (Italian for air; plural: arie or arias in common usage) in music was originally any expressive melody, usually, but not always, performed by a singer.
Aria could also mean a melodic scheme (motif) or pattern for singing a poetic pattern, such as a sonnet.
By the mid-19th century, many operas became a sequence of arias, reducing the space left for recitative, while other operas (for instance those by Wagner) were entirely through-composed, with no section being readily identifiable as a self-contained aria.

Italian opera composers developed the aria da capo, a throughcomposed (nonstrophic) three-part structure in which the beginning section is repeated after a contrasting middle section.
But in French operas, especially those of Christoph W. von Gluck, there was a development leading to greater similarity of recitative and aria, which eventually culminated in the complete abandonment of arias in the late operas of Richard Wagner, who substituted a highly melodic recitative called Sprechgesang [Ger.,=speech-song].
The form continued to be preferred by Italian opera composers, however, and the romantic aria reached its height in the works of Giuseppe Verdi.

Aria of Sorrow may feature a wonderful soundtrack and beautiful graphics, but the one reason it is so addicting is the classic gameplay.

Three spectacular games in three years is quite a feat, but it's true; Aria of Sorrow continues the legacy that is Castlevania, and succeeds as being yet another hit game for the franchise and the GameBoy Advance.

 Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (gba: 2003): Reviews
Aria of Sorrow totally enraptures me in its world, more so than most environments made up of seemingly obscene numbers and polygons.
Aria of Sorrow comes the closest of the three Game Boy Advance titles to replicating the look and feel of Castlevania on the original PlayStation, and one-ups it by the inclusion of the addictive soul collecting.
Since Aria Of Sorrow is the third Castlevania in as many years, I'm also concerned that Konami is growing increasingly content to simply rest on their laurels.

Aria of Sorrow follows the adventure of a young man named Soma Cruz in the year 2035, on the eve of a solar eclipse.
In Aria of Sorrow, Soma can absorb the souls of the enemies he encounters along his quest, thus giving him their special abilities, such as the ability to walk on water or the ability to leap great distances.
With that said, the music featured in Aria of Sorrow is almost as good as the soundtrack found in Circle of the Moon, the first GBA Castlevania game, yet it could have been better.

We powered up the Aria to hear the effect of the RM9's removal, and were greeted with a huge amount of hum, primarily from one channel.
For the Aria, however, this routine will be broken in an effort to emphasize a point, and if this point isn't stressed right off the bat, it will appear that I'm condemning what in reality is a very fine product.
The Aria was a tad warmer than the Music Reference, and blended the male voices in a particularly appealing manner.

Aria of Sorrow will be familiar territory for fans of this long-standing series, but they'll love it anyway, and so will anyone looking for a great GBA action game.
Aria of Sorrow, the third Castlevania for Nintendo's portable system, is probably the best one yet, both in terms of its gameplay and design and also in terms of its production qualities.
However, it must be said that Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow is at heart a very similar game to last year's Harmony of Dissonance and 2001's Circle of the Moon and that all three of these games bear more than a passing resemblance to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, a PlayStation game dating back to 1997.

 Aria review by S. Burridge
This collection of operatic arias as interpreted by nine different directors (ten if you count Bill Bryden's linking story) was producer Don Boyd's personal project.
Surprisingly, it is from the two least expected sources, Sturridge and Roddam, that the potential of Boyd's concept is best realized - their sequences are as evocative and emotive as we would hope for.
But it is Ken Russell, who has always been adept at this sort of thing, where ARIA really coalesces in terms of concept, visuals, and music.

 GameSpy.com - Review
Aria of Sorrow plays in the exploration-heavy, RPG-lite "Metroidvania" style established by 1997's Symphony of the Night, and comes very close to duplicating that game's numerous charms.
Konami has once again opted to revamp the magic system, so there are no DSS cards or magic books in sight.
Aside from the soul system, Aria of Sorrow plays just like you'd expect a post-Symphony Castlevania game to play, but with none of the problems that have haunted the last two offerings.
