The Legend of Zelda, Nintendo’s popular fantasy game franchise, is experiencing something of a revival in 2015. The gaming giant released a reboot of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Netflix is working on a television adaptation of the series, and now a musical homage to Zelda is touring the U.S.
Seattle gamers and music-lovers alike will have the opportunity to see The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses at Benaroya Hall March 2. The symphony will draw on more than 28 years of music from the franchise.
Event organizers say the symphony is “designed to be a journey as epic and thrilling as the Legend itself” with all-new arrangements under the direction of the original franchise producer, composer, and sound director. Tickets are available here.
