The beloved music of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda, which millions of bleary-eyed gamers can probably still hum on command, comes to San Francisco as The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Tour featuring a live orchestral performance.

Composed by musician Koji Kondo, who also created the music for the original Super Mario Bros., the theme music played a vital role in creating the atmosphere of Zelda and enhancing countless players’ overall enjoyment of the epic quest.

The playing of musical instruments also figured into the original gameplay, being the key sometimes to the solving of puzzles.
