The Legend of Zelda Day is celebrated throughout Nerdom on February 21st, the day on which the game in the golden cartridge was first released to the public in Japan in 1986 on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Even so, some of us here in the Eternal City will celebrate the Legend of Zelda Day early (or, perhaps, late) as we attend The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses this evening in a one-time performance in Rome.
After following closely the devastating attacks in Paris Friday night (I was up until after 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning trying to discern what happened and didn't sleep well again last night), I am very much looking forward to this light-hearted and excellent audio and visual delight (I attended a performance in St. Louis just before returning to Rome).
If you are a fan of this video game series and the symphony comes to your area, I cannot recommend attending it enough. You won't be disappointed.
