“Live music by the Columbus Symphony Orchestra accompanies the dramatic sword fights and dream-like duets that unfold on stage. The musicians, under the direction of conductor Peter Stafford Wilson, are flawless in their performance of Sergei Prokofiev's score,” Broadway world reviews. The article adds that even before the curtain lifts to reveal the opening scene, “the ensemble's full-bodied sound flows out of the orchestra pit and fills the air with a palpable excitement.”

The Ohio Theatre venue is often called the "Official Theatre of the State of Ohio." The structure was saved from demolition and later underwent a thorough restoration, now boasting an impressive seating capacity that is best for hosting shows from classical music to the hottest modern concerts.
