The award-winning musical, The Lion King, officially opened at West End on October 19th, 1999. Adapted from the 1994 hit film by Disney, director and designer Julie Taymor has created a marvelous spectacle by bringing the flora and fauna of Africa to life on stage.
Your senses are in for an absolute treat with the colorful setting of the Pridelands, against the timeless original score by Elton John and Tim Rice, with additional songs by Hans Zimmer, Julie Taymor, Mark Mancina, and Lebo M.
Celebrating its 21st year at Lyceum Theatre, Julie Taymor’s redefined version of the musical will go beyond anything you’ve ever imagined. Transport yourself to the heart of the Pridelands as you watch the giraffes strut, the gazelles leap, and the lions roar!
Lion King: The Musical is based on a hit film of the same name by Walt Disney in 1994. Set in the Pridelands of Africa comes the inspiring story of a young cub Simba and his journey through life.
Simba learns all about Pride Rock and the kingdom from his father Mufasa. His Uncle Scar is rather unhappy about Simba’s birth, which ruins his chances of succession. Scar, along with his hyenas, plot to kill Simba and Mufasa and take over the Pridelands with a terribly vengeful plan.
A series of unfortunate events lead to Scar tricking Simba into running away from his home and never coming back. Scar takes over as King, while Simba is on his own journey far away. As Simba grows into a young lion, his past catches up to him and he must return to Pride Rock and fulfill his destiny.
Listen to songs such as Can You Feel The Love Tonight”, “Circle of Life”, “I Just Can’t Wait to be King”, and “Be Prepared”, including the iconic “Hakuna Matata” at the Lion King Musical.
