London to host Zelda concert

Wii U

Gaming fans in the capital can enjoythe full-orchestra experience of Link's journeys.

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess is set to hit the Hammersmith Apollo on May 23rd, with gaming themes performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir.

Following on from the successful Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony last year, the capital will see the orchestral experience return after a fan-pleasing tour in North America.

Based on the popular videogames, the tour will feature live orchestral performances of the themes from the Zelda series of titles.

Fans will be treated to a four-movement symphony, treading on 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 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,” commented Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, the concert's producer.

“This concert program is an extraordinary glimpse into the spellbinding world of Zelda through the lens of world-class orchestral music. We are honoured to bring this unique experience to this great city."
