I'm looking for Symphonic Metal with beautiful female operatic vocals of the highest technical level. Preferably sad, and Doom or Gothic orientated, not the poppy stuff like Delain/late Nightwish. Something like Die After Day, Poemisia or Whispering Woods.

Therion? Just noticed we don't really appear to have a specific thread for symphonic metal :P

Tarja actually gets pretty operatic fyi, but more is never a bad thing:
Try this band, they've changed their name to Валькирия on their next album (and don't seem to have any Youtube videos up under that name either) but still the same stuff:

There's also this impressive young band called Eternal Dream who sound exactly like what you want:

It doesn't get such a good rep among his fans, but Luca Turilli's done an album with a really good operatic singer which sounds like it might be what you want (under the name "Luca Turilli's Dreamquest"):

If you want "Doom or gothic orientated" too, then try out The 3rd and the Mortal's early albums, might be right up your alley:

Was gonna mention The 3rd and the Mortal, Kari Rueslatten is amazing. The Sins of Thy Beloved fit as well, especially the debut, one of the only bands to use lead violin! Also, not metal, but check out Mors Syphilitica, classically-influenced goth/symphonic rock with operatic vocals of the highest order.

So far, Niobeth and Rain Fell Within were the closest. Keep 'em coming.
