Nintendo announce The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses
It has today been announced that following the success of The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony tour, Nintendo are to continue with a further concert series next year.
This new concert tour is due to travel across the United States in 2012, as The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses.
Beginning in January 10th, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform orchestral arrangements of music from the game’s twenty five year history accompanied by video content from the games themselves. Tickets for the Dallas performance are now available directly from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and range in price from $19 to $115. Club Nintendo members will be able to claim a 15% discount on tickets purchased before November 30th.
Additional performance dates will be announced in the future.
Nintendo has once again teamed up with Jason Michael Paul Productions, and the highlight of this new musical program is a full four-movement symphony that will guide fans through a musical retelling of key chapters from The Legend of Zelda franchise. Irish-born conductor Eímear Noone will also return to conduct, and the multimedia show will pair iconic music and gorgeous visuals from classic Zelda titles including the newest game in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
“The love that fans feel for The Legend of Zelda series cannot be overstated,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “In 2012, we want to give people across the country a chance to come together and enjoy the music from the games that mean so much to so many.”
“The Legend of Zelda is as close to our hearts as it is for the fans,” added Jeron Moore, producer for Jason Michael Paul Productions. “The tour will be something both fans of the franchise and music enthusiasts alike won’t want to miss.”
