A well-received Legend of Zelda orchestral event is crossing the South Pacific for single concerts in Australia and New Zealand in August.

Symphony of the Goddesses is billed "as an entirely new, exciting multimedia experience presenting over 30 years of music from The Legend of Zelda franchise as never before".

Basically, an orchestra plays overtures from the hallowed game series, while gameplay and musician close-ups play on screens above.

The show is 2.5 hours from beginning to end, including intermission, and promises melodies from titles including Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, A Link to the Past, Link's Awakening and more.

The orchestra's all-new arrangements have been approved by franchise producer Eiji Aonuma and Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondo.

Symphony of the Goddesses plays in Auckland on August 14 at the ASB Theater, and tickets – which start at NZ$90 – are available now.

The shows then travels all the way to Perth's Riverside Theater for a concert on August 24. Tickets for that one go on sale on May 10.

There's more information on the show's official site.
