The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses
at Riverside Theatre
24 August 2017
Zelda Symphony Heads Down Under for the First Time in Four Years!
We are excited to announce that PSO will be performing as part of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses show at the Riverside Theatre on the 24th of August, 2017. The upcoming show will feature an all new movement from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, an updated overture, and the return of a classic that might just make some wishes come true! As always, new merchandise is also available in the Zelda Symphony shop.
“We’re really going all-out this year to celebrate the newly released The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Besides all the new stuff, we’re also bringing back the Ballad of the Wind Fish from the original program, which has been a big request from fans for a while.”
says Jason Michael Paul of Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc. (the tour promoter).
Celebrating 30 years of stirring virtual adventure and memorable soundtracks with live orchestral renditions with oversight and approval from the game’s developers and composers, The Symphony of the Goddesses is now in its fourth season.
Led by PSO’s Chief Conductor Jessica Gethin, who will be touring with the concert for the duration of the Australian and Asian segments of the world tour, the two-hour concert comes to life with a full orchestra and choir, and a reimagined score that draws from requested Zelda games, including The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, while still paying homage to such classics as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with original music from Nintendo composers, including Koji Kondo, and recalling moments of Link conquering dungeons and running through forests.
Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.
