Know the “Legend of Zelda” theme? Play it in your head. Right now. “Da, daaa, da-da-da-da-daaaaa!” Feels good, right?
Hearing it from a full orchestra should feel fantastic.
Tickets are now on sale for “The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses,” a 12-city symphony tour that will serenade Seattle fans with themes from one of Nintendo’s most iconic game series March 26 at Benaroya Hall.
The series has sold more than 65 million units worldwide since the release of the original “Legend of Zelda” game in 1986, and Nintendo’s still cranking them out: “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” was launched exclusively for the Wii in November.
The concert will feature a four-movement symphony tracing key chapters in the life of the series and will be conducted by Irish composer/conductor Eímar Noone (who — with a lean frame and long golden hair — might pass as Princess Zelda herself).
Nintendo put on a “Legend of Zelda” symphony concert in Los Angeles this fall to mark the game’s 25th anniversary and tease this year’s tour. The video below is Nintendo’s footage from that show, including interviews with renowned Zelda series composer Koji Kondo and producer Eiji Aonuma.
