DALLAS Next month, fans of "The Legend of Zelda," one of Nintendo's long-standing video game series, will have the opportunity to hear the music from the games performed by a live orchestra and choir at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas.
"The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Tour" will have its outdoor performance at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, at the center's Anette Strauss Square. The tour was created in commemoration of the series' 25th anniversary.
The tour's name, "Symphony of the Goddesses," refers to a new, four-movement symphony recounting stories from four of "The Legend of Zelda" games: "Ocarina of Time," "The Wind Waker," "Twilight Princess" and "A Link to the Past."
In addition, other series themes from Nintendo composer Koji Kondo will be performed, including pieces from "The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening" and "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask." The orchestra will be conducted by Eimear Noone with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter (Star Trek, LOST).
