Dating a gamer or are one yourself? If so, you’d know that the soundtrack of a game plays an important role in creating the atmosphere and building the world of the game. Think Super Mario Bros., Diablo and Final Fantasy. Play just snippets of their music and you are instantly transported to a time you played the game.
This year, 2 popular video games we played through our childhood–and even our youth–will see their musical scores being played live in concert!
1. The Legend of Zelda – Symphony of the Goddesses
The Legend of Zelda concert is an OG gamer’s dream come true. The popular Nintendo high-fantasy action-adventure video game series turns 31 this year, and with a series of spin-offs and adaptions under its belt, it’s won over fans both young and young at heart.
Fans of the iconic video game will be brought on an orchestral adventure, featuring all new movement from Skyward Sword and a much-anticipated Breath of the Wild arrangement. Audiences will watch their favourite video game come to life with a full orchestra and choir, alongside a stirring cinematic video presentation!
