O hell yea. You read that right. This brilliant idea is brought to you by none other than the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, who have been delivering out of the box performances all year. From En Vogue to Trey Anastasio, the PSO’s forward-thinking programming is attracting more and more young attendees than ever before. Every performance to date of “The Legend of Zeldaâ„¢: Symphony of the Goddesses” has sold out in advance, but lucky for you we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!

The concerts will begin at 8PM, Friday, July 27, and Saturday, July 28 at Heinz Hall. Ticket prices range from $30 to $90 and can be purchased here. Did you know this production is the first ever video game themed concert to feature a complete four movement symphony, showcasing the work of Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondo. Zelda is one of the most popular media franchises of all time. Over 62 million copies of the game have been sold since its introduction in 1986, grossing more than Avatar and Titanic combined.

The new four-movement symphony recounts the classic story lines 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. The concerts also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from other series games, including The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Irish conductor Eímear Noone will lead the PSO, with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter.

I can remember playing the first Zelda on Nintendo growing up. It was by far my favorite video game until I grew out of playing video games on the reg, though I dabble from time to time and will kick your ass in Soul Calibur! If you don’t believe me I will challenge any reader to a match. Since we’re in the mood, why don’t you leave a comment below as to what your favorite Zelda game is and we’ll choose a winner at random on Thursday, July 26th. Please make sure you leave your e-mail address so we can notify the winner! For more information on the show, visit here.

    Tough choice, though I’m going with Ocarina of Time!!! One of the best games I’ve ever played.

    Zelda 3: A Link to the Past. I loved Zelda I & II on Nintendo, but the SNES NAILED IT. N64’s Ocarina of Time is incredible, but 3 was the best [and did the dark vs. light theme before any of the Gamecube/Wii iterations].

    I think I left my e-mail in the required e-mail box, but it’s adamrauf at gmail dot com. Thanks!

    KOJI KONDO = ONE OF MY FAV COMPOSERS OF ALL TIME!
    Adam, I agree that OOT and ALLTP are among the best games of all time. But for my personal favorite Zelda game? I’m going with the Game Boy Color (DX) version of Link’s Awakening. Something about that game still captures my imagination like the first time I played it!

    I see i join a few people when I say Link’s Awakening for the original Gameboy. That was the first Zelda game that truly made me a Link fan! The fact that it was on Gameboy also meant I could play it in boring on the go situations like bus rides, boring classes, and church. I thought that the huge egg at the title screen meant there would be a massive Yoshi in it. Even though there wasn’t the game was still amazing, so much so i recently downloaded for the 3DS!

  6. Majora’s Mask. A evil moon & harbinger of death hanging overhead at all times, looking down on a world desaturated and grim in and of itself, while the player character frantically and frenetically fixes it–that’s a damn fun world.

  7. MR. OWL says:

    Yep Jared, I bought the 3DS solely for playing Ocarina of Time and was happy to find Links Awakening on the download store as well! im still crossing my fingers for the re-release of Majoras Mask or even better, A Link to the Past!
