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.
“Gaming fans across Europe have a strong devotion to the Zelda franchise,” notes Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour. “We are thrilled to take our concert to London and Paris and give these fans what they’ve been waiting for.”
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!
