‘Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses’ In 2013

The beloved Nintendo video game series is going back to the symphony. Featuring a live orchestra performing theme music from the 27-year-old franchise, the second season of “Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” begins in the U.S. in June.  

The concert is made up of a four-movement symphony with storylines from “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time,” “The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker,” “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” and “The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.” Plus, fans will get to hear orchestral renditions of music from additional games including “The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening,” “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask” and “The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.”

Nintendo sound director and Zelda franchise composer Koji Kondo has given the orchestral score his stamp of approval.
