The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses comes to Los Angeles and will be hosted by actress Zelda Williams, daughter of Robin Williams. Yes, that’s her real name.
The concert will occur on June 6, 2012 at the Greek Theater and will coincide with the E3 Expo. The concert features live orchestral performances of theme music from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda franchise.
The name Symphony of the Goddesses refers not only to the concert program but also to the new four-movement symphony recounting the classic 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. The concert also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from other series games, including The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Eímear Noone will conduct the full orchestra with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter.
“Bringing this unique Zelda concert to Los Angeles during E3 is a tremendous opportunity,” notes Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour. “The response last year for the 25th Anniversary Symphony at The Pantages Theatre in L.A. was unparalleled, so it’s exciting to return with a brand new experience for both loyal and new fans. Plus, the effervescent and charismatic Zelda Williams will host the evening, making this a truly extraordinary event for fans and music enthusiasts alike.”
Additional Zelda tour dates are planned for Pittsburgh at Heinz Hall on July 27 and 28, Boston at The Wang Theatre on October 18, Chicago at The Chicago Theatre on October 25, and New York City at The Theater at MSG on November 28; beyond these concerts, even more dates will be announced soon.
