The Missing Link Between VideoGames and The Arts
Orchestral music was once the pop of its time. Nowadays, the symphony is attended mostly by an older crowd, but if you want something to survive, you've gotta get the young'uns to pay attention to it. And so the "Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses" tour comes to the Kravis Center at 8 p.m. Saturday. Yes, it is exactly what you are thinking. In a four-movement symphony, the orchestra will play the score from the classic Nintendo franchise, including selections from Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. If you know what that is, you just wet yourself with excitement. Corresponding scenes from the classic games will play on massive screens above the orchestra as 30-somethings throughout the audience gently weep from the overwhelming childhood nostalgia. By the time you leave, the symphony will be your new favorite thing, and the arts will live on.
The Kravis Center is located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $25. Call 561-832-7469, or visit kravis.org.
