The long-running Final Fantasy series is well-known to gamers for many things: its storyline, gameplay, and of course, its music. In fact, the music from Final Fantasy are as iconic as the games themselves and next year, you will be able to see some of them being performed by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO).
According to the concert listing for 2019 season that MPO released earlier this month, the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy show will be taking place on 12 and 13 April at the Dewan Philharmonik Petronas in Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC. A local choir group, Dithyrambic Singers will also be accompanying MPO at the concert which will be under the direction of Arnie Roth, the very conductor that is part of Distant Worlds’ global symphony concert tour.
Details regarding the MPO concerts have yet to appear on Distant Worlds’ official website though; so, at this moment we don’t know if there will be any special appearances by Final Fantasy composers or original vocalists. You might have remembered that the series’ legendary composer, Nobou Uemetsu himself came down to the Kuala Lumpur leg of Distant Worlds’ tour last year.
Tickets for the concerts are priced at RM 141, RM 198, RM 254, and RM 358. MPO Subscribers already able to purchase these tickets while they will be made available to the general public starting from 20 December 2018. So, get them as soon as possible if you plan to attend them.
