Dragon Quest Concert
"Panpa, pan-pan-pan-pan, panpapa--N" - that song that plays on the title screen of the popular game, "Dragon Quest." This BGM, "Prelude", which can be said to be a byword for "Dragon Quest," is heroic and showy, strengthening the feeling that at this very moment, a quest is about to begin.

The sub-theme is "交響組曲 'ドラゴンクエストⅧ' - 空と海と大地と呪われし姫君 -" (lit.: Symphony Suite 'Dragon Quest Ⅷ' - The Sky, Sea, Land, and the Cursed Princess). Focusing on a work that is considered notable even within the "Dragon Quest" Series, the stage unfolds whilst interweaving talks with series' composer, Sugiyama Koichi. Revealing a performance by professional orchestra, the Kyushu Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Theater Orchestra Tokyo's 井田勝大 (Ida Katsuhiro). Listeners will be drawn into a world of adventure!
