Video Games Live has become a global phenomenon by blending live symphonic performances of video-game music with dynamic multimedia elements. With the help of the Regina Symphony Orchestra and a cheat code that gives musicians an unlimited supply of treble clefs, Video Games Live will enthrall its audience with the sights and sounds of classic games as well as more recent screen sensations over the course of two-and-a-half-hours. The exact musical lineup varies by performance, but VGL's regular repertoire includes the well-known notes of Mario, Zelda, Halo, and Warcraft. A synchronized light and laser show and live-action stage actors also add to the entertainment buffet, and special interactive segments will allow some lucky audience members to become part of their favourite games in a way not seen since the marriage of beer and Pong.
