Vancouver Symphony Brings Legend Of Zelda To Life

Back by popular demand, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is bringing the music of The Legend of Zelda to life for the second time.

SECOND QUEST! is taking place at the Orpheum Theatre on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

The evening consists of a four-movement symphony that explores the 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. Along with the music, which will be conducted by Susie Benchasil Seiter, expect to be swept away by stunning visuals.

The show is the brainchild of San Francisco-based concert producer Jason Michael Paul, according to the Georgia Straight, and features compositions by Japan's game music icon Koji Kondo.

These shows have all been very well-received, and the musicians, after the show, are amazed at how much it’s a breath of fresh air,” Paul told the Straight of the touring show. “They’re getting standing ovations, and the people are just ecstatic.”

As The Vancouver Sun reports, SECOND QUEST! isn't the VSO's only interesting bill this fall. The orchestra will also be performing The Cocktail Hour: Music of the Mad Men Era, accompanied by singers, on Nov. 8 and 9.
