On Jan. 10, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform orchestral arrangements of music from the game's 25-year history accompanied by video content from the games themselves.

Nintendo has teamed up with Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. to provide video game fans with the ultimate musical experience for The Legend of Zelda. The highlight of this new musical program is a full four-movement symphony that will guide fans through a musical retelling of key chapters from The Legend of Zelda franchise. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concerts will be conducted by Irish-born conductor Eimear Noone, and the multimedia show will pair iconic music and gorgeous visuals from classic Zelda titles, including the newest game in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii™ console.

"The love that fans feel for The Legend of Zelda series cannot be overstated," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "In 2012, we want to give people across the country a chance to come together and enjoy the music from the games that mean so much to so many."
