Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Presents The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Second Quest, Nov. 21(August 30, 2013)
Baltimore, Md. (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses returns to the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall by popular demand with Second Quest on Thursday, November 21 at 8 p.m. The show boasts new visuals and music exploring additional chapters from the Zelda franchise as well as the beautifully orchestrated 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. Fan-favorite scenes from the games will also flash on a jumbo screen above the stage. Please see below for complete program details.
Selling more copies than Avatar and Titanic combined, Zelda has been a fan-favorite since its inception in 1986. Over 62 million copies of the video game have been sold, and its popularity has spurred a book series, morning cartoons and even a breakfast cereal. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses brings Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondos music to life as the first video game-themed concert to feature a four movement symphony.
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has already captured the attention of Zelda fans worldwide. Producing sold-out shows across the country, the music and visuals come together to create an enthralling performance encapsulating 25 years of original Zelda music.
