Walt Disney's long running and multi-award winning musical The Lion King continues to delight audiences in London's West End. After opening on Broadway in 1997, the show has gone on to be the most successful piece of entertainment in history, mounting numerous world-wide productions including the original London production at the Lyceum Theatre in the heart of the West End.
Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's The Lion King is unlike anything ever before seen in musical theatre, and will redefine your expectations of what theatre can be. Director and designer Julie Taymor crafts a colourful, imaginative and highly creative world that brings the flora, fauna and animals of Africa to live, set against a timeless score by Elton John and Tim Rice, with additional songs by Lebo M, Julie Taymor, Mark Mancina and Hans Zimmer.
Featuring the original songs from the 1994 film, including "Circle of Life", "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", "Be Prepared" and "Hakuna Matata" The Lion King musical is a treat for audiences of all ages. Families young and old continue to pack the Lyceum Theatre with their Lion King tickets to celebrate in the majestic storytelling that transports you to a dazzling world that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music.
The production currently stars New Zealander Nicholas Afoa who makes his West End debut in the role of Simba, reprising his performance from the Australian production. Read our interview with Nicholas Afoa to find out more about his experience with the show.
