Last night, “The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” made a grand return to Montreal with producer Jason Michael Paul. The audience witnessed the epic repertoire from “The Legend of Zelda”series, originally composed by Koji Kondo.
Conducted by Amy Anderson and performed by local orchestral musicians, a full house was enchanted at the Theatre Place des Arts!
The orchestra performed two acts and celebrated fan favourites such as “Majora’s Mask” and “Skyward Sword”. There were four incredible movements dedicated to “Ocarina of Time”, “Wind Waker”, “Twilight Princess” and “A Link to the Past”.
Remember entering Gerudo Valley for the first time? Or how about discovering a Fairy Fountain when in need for some precious hearts? The orchestra took us back to those special nostalgic moments and gave everyone goosebumps!
The entire arrangement of this two hour show flowed perfectly and felt quite magical. Many smiles were seen across the room from all ages and the audience exclaimed their gratitude with many loud cheers and multiple standing ovations.
Die hard fans made themselves truly noticeable with their impressive cosplay and many others proudly wore their Zelda merchandise.
There is no need to be a Zelda expert to enjoy the show. You don’t even have to be familiar with the series because this show is pure entertainment! Every melody originally composed by Koji Kondo is basically GOOD MUSIC! (Excuse me for that fangirl moment hehe)
Apart from the music, another great part of the show is the fact that the orchestra played in sync with beautiful Zelda game play footage spanning over 25 years in the making!
This successful tour is currently making it’s way across Canada, USA and Europe. With the trend of video game music symphonies rising, we hope to see this show return to Montreal or maybe even a Super Mario inspired symphony?! Here’s hoping!
