    Hyrule Creation Myth and The Rite of Spring
    • Anyone familiar with Igor Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring"? Some of you remember it from the Disney film, "Fantasia" in the segment that depicts the creation of the universe and earth as well as the rise and fall of the dinosaurs.

      Imagine the Creation Myth of Hyrule from "Ocarina of Time" being retold/dramatized to an abridged adaptation of "The Rite of Spring" in a similar manner as the animated segment from "Fantasia".

      Here is a selection of some of the movements from "The Rite of Spring". The names of the movements accompanied with a section of the dialogue spoken by the Great Deku Tree to fit with the mood of each musical movement. Keep in mind this is partially the same selection used in the Fantasia version

      Part I: Adoration of the Earth
      • Introduction - "Before time began, before spirits and life existed... Three golden goddesses descended upon the chaos that was Hyrule..."
      • Augurs of Spring,Dances of the Young Girls & Ritual of Abduction - "Din... With her strong flaming arms, she cultivated the land and created the red earth."
      Part II: The Sacrifice
      • Introduction - "Nayru... Poured her wisdom onto the earth and gave the spirit of law to the world."
      • Mystic Circles of the Young Girls - "Farore... With her rich soul, produced all life forms who would uphold the law."
