The Lion King

Disney’s beloved film The Lion King has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience at the Lyceum Theatre

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney’s multi-award winning musical The Lion King will redefine your expectations of the theatre. Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney’s beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music.

At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba – the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as the King of the Pridelands.

The Lion King score is by Elton John with lyrics by Tim Rice and includes The Circle of Life, Can You Feel the Love Tonight, Hakuna Matata and He Lives in You.
