Final Fantasy Concert?
In February, the Chicagoland Pops Orchestra played a unique experimental concert with great success. They played a live symphonic rendition of music from the video game epic Final Fantasy XI, accompanying large-screen images of characters from the game. (Tribune Article)

I have recently heard that the same concert is being considered in a slightly smaller midwest city with a high-caliber symphony orchestra (the city must remain anonymous, so please don't name it if you know or can guess). I offered to ask around a bit to see what kind of appeal such a show might have.

The game has an avid following, but I'm not a part of the cult myself, having never played it. I know I've seen the game mentioned on my friends-list though, so I'm hoping to get some feedback from you fine people. Hence....a poll! Please help.

Poll #470629 Final Fantasy

Do you play Final Fantasy?

Religiously
19(33.9%)
Now and then
10(17.9%)
No
27(48.2%)

Does the idea of hearing the music played by a live professional orchestra, complete with video screens with scenes from the game, sound cool?

Oh yeah, that would be really neat!
30(53.6%)
Sure, it sounds interesting
16(28.6%)
Not really
6(10.7%)
um, final what?
4(7.1%)

Would you pay $55 - $65 to see such a performance?

Definitely, that would be totally worth it, I'd road-trip to see it!
13(23.6%)
Yes if I had that kind of money, but I don't.
9(16.4%)
It sounds pricey, but I might, if it was on a convenient night.
10(18.2%)
Probably not.
17(30.9%)
Definitely not worth it
6(10.9%)

Any additional suggestions, thoughts, or comments you can offer?

I have a friend who went to the concert, it was a pretty big deal for her. She would totally go again, I think.

I would love it. I hav ea number of Final Fantasy remixes.

Ditto. Friend and her sister aren't really concert goers. They paid big bucks to a scalper to get tickets for this.
