The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of Goddesses concert is coming to Sydney.

The concert is an audio and visual celebration of the 30-year-long Nintendo franchise, The Legend of Zelda, re-imagining some of the most iconic tunes in gaming. The Sydney show will be held at the Sydney Opera House on October 29.

The Symphony of Goddesses will be the first tour to include music from this year’s Breath of the Wild, along with a set-list approved by series producer Eiji Aonuma. The show will be led by conductor Jessica Gethin (Disney in Concert) and created by Jason Michael Paul, who has penned a variety of video game related orchestral concerts (Dear Friends - Music from Final Fantasy, Play! A Video Game Symphony, The Legend of Zelda - 25th Anniversary Concerts).

“The five-movement multimedia symphony concert regales fans with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music, recalling movements of Link conquering dungeons, running through forests, and struggling to decide what colour tunic to wear,” a Facebook post for the event said. “Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.”

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of Goddesses concert will also be touring at Perth’s Convention & Exhibition Centre on August 24 and the Arts Centre Melbourne on September 3. The first Legend of Zelda symphony orchestra celebrating the series’ 25th anniversary performed at Sydney’s Opera House in 2013.

The Legend of Zelda is an adventure game series by Nintendo. The most recent game in the series, Breath of the Wild, released to huge critical and fan acclaim on the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
