On June 6, thousands swarmed the Greek Theater in Los Angeles to witness The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, a celebration of one of gaming's most beloved franchises. The event was hosted by actress Zelda Williams (named after the princess, in fact) and was a delight for fans, showcasing The Ocarina of Time, The Windwaker, Twilight Princess, and A Link to the Past.
The orchestra was conducted by Eimear Noone, who also conducted the Zelda 25th Anniversary concert the year prior, with arrangements for the four-movement symphony by music director Chad Seiter. However, once the symphony itself was over the orchestra was far from done as Williams came out multiple times to announce encores highlighting games outside of the more typical Zelda plot, including Link's Awakening and Majora's Mask. Williams cited that the inclusion of Majora's Mask (her personal favorite) was the result of Nintendo listening to its fans via message boards and social networks.
Each arrangement plotted the events of the games and truly displayed how Koji Kondo's original tracks perfectly captured the whimsical tone of Hyrule. We recommend experiencing the concert firsthand when it comes to a city near you throughout the summer. Tour locations can be found at Zelda-Symphony.com.
