The Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary orchestra tour, Symphony of the Goddess, will come to Europe this year, with concerts scheduled in England and France, tour organizers announced today.
On May 23, Zelda fans can join London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir under conductor Eímear Noone at the Hammersmith Apollo for the four-movement symphony. Each movement represents a major storyline from the Legend of Zelda franchise: Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and A Link to the Past. The concert will also feature arrangements from other series titles, including Link's Awakening and Majora's Mask.
The decision to bring the tour to Europe was spurred by the success of the series' 25th anniversary concert held in London in 2011.
"The response in 2011 for The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony was unparalleled, so it's exciting to return with a brand new experience for both loyal and new fans," said concert producer Jason Michael Paul in a press statement. "This concert program is an extraordinary glimpse into the spellbinding world of Zelda through the lens of world-class orchestral music. We are honored to bring this unique experience to this great city."
A second concert will take place at Le Palais des Congrès in Paris on May 25 before the symphony returns to North America.
