Zelda concert returns to Dallas
It's an evening of classically-trained musicians playing video game tunes.
DALLAS When The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses made its national debut here in Dallas, performed by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, it sold out very quickly. It deserved the hype, as the mixture of high-class symphony fans and hardcore Zelda lovers helped make the performance incredibly special. The Meyerson was packed, but there were plenty of people disappointed that they weren’t able to get tickets.
(You can see a gallery of that symphony, and its cosplaying fans, here.)
But just like series villain Ganon, the symphony has managed to come back. This time, the Dallas POPS Orchestra will be bringing the memorable Zelda soundtrack to life presented by the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 24 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at attpac.org. You might want to set an alarm or something, as there’s a good chance they’ll be snatched up quickly. The performance itself will be outside at Annette Strauss Square in the Downtown Dallas Arts District on Friday, October 12 at 8 p.m. BYOB.
