What are the best "Civic Light Opera" companies in the country?

Not all of them are of called "civic light opera" -- but you know what I'm talking about. Regional theatre companies that produce full scale musical productions with great production values, full orchestras (often bigger orchestras than the ones you'll hear on Broadway) and talented equity casts -- some with several Broadway credits.
I'm traveling a lot for work now, so I'm interested to hear what are the best of these types of companies across the country. Please, no community theatres or intimate regional spaces that feature 4- piece orchestras.
