    ... us to see everything including the 50 piece orchestra who were as interesting to watch as the production itself. At times there must have been over 200 actors on stage and there were at least 7 or 8 horses that made their appearance. I couldn’t help but wonder if the horses were stabled in the old lions’ dens and if they could still smell or sense them anymore. It certainly didn’t seem like they were upset by anything.
