Before you roll your eyes about this symphony inspired by a video game, take a moment to consider why The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses even exists.

Based on Japanese game designer Shigeru Miyamoto’s childhood adventures in the Kyoto countryside, the franchise (which boils down to green-tunicked hero Link saving Princess Zelda and the kingdom of Hyrule from the evil wizard Ganon) plays out to fantasy-driven compositions by Nintendo’s own Koji Kondo.

Sparked five years ago by the release of the game’s 25th anniversary CD and concert series, the touring Symphony of the Goddesses returns to the Majestic with a 66-piece orchestra and 24-person choir in tow. Staged in celebration of the game’s 30th anniversary, the company’s latest pays tribute to Zelda’s past and present (from A Link to the Past to Breath of the Wild) with a melange of symphonic movements and video clips recalling “moments of Link conquering dungeons, running through forests, and struggling to decide what color tunic to wear.”

$54.25-$104.25, Friday, October 27, 8pm, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
