New Concert Series Legend Of Zelda: Symphony Of The Goddess


Some more Zelda news today, this time for our North American Zelda fans! It has been announced today that Nintendo are to continue a series of Symphony concerts next year across America, starting January 10th in Dallas. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform orchestral arrangements of music from The Legend of Zelda‘s twenty five year history, just like what we seen in London.

Here is what was released by Nintendo:

Video game fans in the Lone Star State will soon be able to experience Nintendo’s musical tribute to The Legend of Zelda™ video game series. On Jan. 10, 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. This new concert series will go on tour across the United States in 2012 as The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses. Tickets for the Dallas performance are now available directly from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and range in price from $19 to $115. Through Nov. 30, tickets are available to Club Nintendo members at a 15% discount.

Nintendo has teamed up with Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. to provide video game fans with the ultimate musical experience for The Legend of Zelda. 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. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concerts will be conducted by Irish-born conductor Eímear Noone, 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 for the Wii™ console.

“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,” said Jeron Moore, producer for Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. “The tour will be something both fans of the franchise and music enthusiasts alike won’t want to miss.”

Additional performance dates will be announced in the future. For more information about the concerts, visit http://www.zelda-symphony.com. For more information about the ticket discount available to Club Nintendo members, please visit club.nintendo.com.
