THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SYMPHONY OF THE GODDESSES COMES TO LONDON IN MAY 2013

(San Francisco, CA) February 4 2013 – Following the success of the “The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony” held in London in 2011, the producers of the show are proud to present “The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” tour. The acclaimed concert experience, which has already captured the hearts of thousands of Zelda fans and music enthusiasts in North America, will make its highly anticipated European debut at the Hammersmith Apollo on May 23. Performed by the the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, fans will journey back to Hyrule and enjoy the music and magic from Nintendo’s beloved The Legend of Zelda franchise like never before.

Based on one of the most popular and beloved video game series of all time, the tour—which has been hailed as a modern classic—features live orchestral performances of theme music from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda franchise. 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 other series games, including The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.  Eímear Noone will conduct the full orchestra with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter, the evening hosted by concert producer and lead creative Jeron Moore.

“The response in 2011 for “The Legend of Zelda 25 th Anniversary Symphony” was unparalleled, so it’s exciting to return with a brand new experience for both loyal and new fans,” notes Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour. “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,” adds Paul.

Guests will relish in their favorite moments from the game, carefully and beautifully timed with a gorgeous orchestral score approved by Nintendo sound director and Zelda franchise composer, Koji Kondo. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, some of which have been known to attend donning green tunics while wielding legendary master swords. Cosplay encouraged!
