The El Paso Symphony Orchestra will be ‘leveling-up’ this weekend as they perform the much-heralded Video Games Live (VGL) show at the Plaza Theatre.
The concert, which – according to the New York Times – “takes the gaming experience light years beyond with a captivating, proudly bombastic show,” is set for April 13, 2019 at 8PM.
The performance includes music from Final Fantasy, Zelda, Mario, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, Skyrim, Castlevania, Halo, World of Warcraft, Pokemon and many other games.
VGL was created by industry legend, composer Tommy Tallarico. The multimedia concert introduces new audiences—families, video game enthusiasts and non-gamers—to the symphonic experience with exclusive video footage and music arrangements, synchronized lighting, well-known Internet solo performers, electronic percussion, live action and interactive segments.
The show spotlights the music that enhances the most gripping video game moments—rescuing the princess, winning the boss fight, saving the galaxy from aliens or defeating the undead—with performances from recent blockbusters and iconic classics.
Praise for the immersive concerts is abundant, with VGL being heralded as a “beautiful performance” (USA Today), “simply breathtaking” (IGN.com), “Thrilling!” (The London Times) and “…a feast for the eyes and ears” (Seattle Times), and “ingenious and fantastic” (Los Angeles Times)
The El Paso Symphony Orchestra is supported in part by the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Tickets prices are $30, $45, $60 to $75 (plus applicable service charges) and are subject to change.
