Symphony of the Goddesses. No, not the sound of a bunch of beyond gorgeous women gabbing away. I’m talking about a real symphony celebrating 28 years of The Legend of Zelda franchise. The show presents the game’s music with “all-new arrangements” approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, along with Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondo (Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda).
“Featuring a first in video game concert history, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has been arranged and programmed with classical sensibilities in mind, organizing the music of this beloved franchise into a complete, 4 movement symphony, worthy of the Hero of Hyrule himself.”
The incredible “Symphony Fit for the Goddesses” travels from the US to Canada to Europe and Central America. Designed to “be a journey as epic and thrilling as the Legend itself,” the show highlights fan favorites including (Zelda lovers, brace yourselves) Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, A Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening and more.
The symphony most recently stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Check out their pretty freakin’ awesome (even to a non-Zelda gal like myself) performance below.
A show like this can be appreciated by both nerdy Zelda gamers and the average Joe. If you love gaming and classical music, then this show will make for a fun and unforgettable night out. Click here for more info and tour dates for the Symphony of the Goddesses.
