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.
