Audiences can expect to experience awesome new inclusions from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the latest game in the series for Nintendo 3DS, and new music from the recently announced remake of fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. These never-before-performed scores accompanied by game-play imagery will appear for the first time ever in “Master Quest,” though fans will still be treated to the show’s now-classic repertoire from seasons past.
The name Symphony of the Goddesses refers not only to the concert program but also to the 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 performance also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Concerts will be performed by full orchestra and choir in world-class venues throughout the world.
“2015 will mark a banner year for Zelda fans. Not only will The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask be coming to Nintendo 3DS, a new Wii U Zelda game is also on its way,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “‘Master Quest’ will be a great opportunity for the Nintendo community to come together and celebrate the legacy of The Legend of Zelda games in a live performance setting.”
“The continued excitement around The Legend of Zelda franchise is amazing, and this special concert will deliver an unforgettable experience for fans,” notes Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc, which is producing the concert tour. “These performances transcend culture and geography and unite people through a common love for this venerable and legendary series.”
Guests will enjoy their favorite moments from the carefully and beautifully timed performance with a gorgeous orchestral score approved by Nintendo sound director and The Legend of Zelda franchise composer Koji Kondo. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, some of whom attend “cosplaying” events as their favorite characters.
