A new adventure awaits as “The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” takes on its second quest on stage at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Majestic Theater, 224 E. Houston St.

Music and visuals from the popular video game franchise will be played in an orchestrated four-movement symphony based on the games “Skyward Sword,” “Spirit Tracks,” “Link’s Awakening,” “Ocarina of Time,” “The Wind Waker,” “Twilight Princess” and “A Link to the Past.”

“The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Second Quest” will include 30 minutes of fresh material as it explores additional chapters of the series.

Act 1 will feature an overture with interludes including “Dungeons of Hyrule,” “Kakariko Village Hope and Calm” and “Songs of the Hero.”

The symphony in the first act includes the themes from “Ocarina of Time” and “The Wind Waker.”

Act 2 will begin with an intermezzo, or a short musical solo, with “The Great Fairy’s Fountain” and orchestrated music from “Twilight Princess” and “A Link to the Past” before the finale.

Symphony conductor Susie Benchasil Seiter grew up in Baltimore where she cultivated her interest in choir and piano.

She received musical training from the University of Southern California and later began assisting Hollywood composers and working at Disney’s music preparation department.

Her husband, music director and arranger Chad Seiter, is a Los Angeles composer who has written music for numerous titles in Hollywood’s large movie and television titles such as “Lost” and “Fringe.”

“The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” has been staged more than 60 times. Since Jan. 20, 2012, in Dallas, the Seiters have been orchestrating the symphony while on tour.

No cameras, phones or pagers will be allowed for use in the theater.

A VIP package for $103.50 includes a premium top price ticket in a preferred seat, a chance to meet and greet the producers and creative team behind the symphony, and a limited edition poster signed by the creative team.

Tickets range from $37.50 to $103.50. To purchase tickets, visit a Ticketmaster outlet, ticketmaster.com or the Majestic Theater box office.
