The Lion King in London

Disney's The Lion King is an unparalleled West End theatrical experience, bringing the enchanting world of the African savannah to the stage in a mesmerising spectacle for all ages. Adapted from the 1994 animation film, The Lion King is one of the most successful stage musicals of all time with performances at the Lyceum Theatre selling out to audiences for over two decades.

Why You Should See Disney's The Lion King

  • Over 200 puppets are used in the production to bring the African savannah to life, including 39 hyenas, 22 wildebeests and 14 lionesses. 50 performers and puppeteers are needed to make this happen!
  • The musical is set to a timeless score by Elton John and Tim Rice, The Lion King contains beloved songs like "Can You Feel The Love Tonight", "The Circle of Life" and "I Just Can't Wait To Be King."
  • The production has earned more than 70 major arts awards during its time, including the 1999 Olivier Award for Best Costume Design.

What is The Lion King about?

The Lion King is a global sensation that was adapted from the Disney film. The film alone is the highest-grossing hand-drawn animated feature of all time, it has transferred to the stage seamlessly.

The musical tells the tale of Simba, a young lion prince who embarks on an epic journey of self-discovery and redemption. After the tragic death of his father, Mufasa, Simba flees his kingdom, feeling responsible for his father's demise. Along the way, he encounters many vibrant characters including the wise mandrill Rafiki, the comedic meerkat Timon, and the loyal warthog Pumbaa. Together they help Simba find his inner courage and embrace his destiny as the rightful king of the Pride Lands.

Directed and designed by Julie Taymor, The Lion King is a tour de force in professional puppetry, delivering a genuine spectacle that’s very hard to forget. Eighteen foot high giraffes canter along the aisles, amazingly real-looking gazelles trot by, and a herd of wildebeest stampede just a few feet away.

The Lion King continues to inspire audiences with its timeless story of hope, resilience, and the enduring power of family. Enjoy a slice of West End history with a trip to the Lyceum Theatre for this family musical.

I went with my friend and her 5 year old daughter. Although I am a huge Elton John fan I never really liked the music for the film soundtrack nor was I a great fan of the film. I went to see the Lion King at the theatre for the 5 year old girl. I expected it would be a great stage production. I have to say I thought it was magnificent in every way. I loved the African rhythms incorporated into The Circle of Life (my friend equally loved the show but thought The Circoe of Life version was not as good as the film soundtrack version.) I go to the theatre as often as I can and thought The Lion King would not be for me. It was MAGNIFICIENT. THE BEST SHOW I HAVE SEEN. I want to see it again and there is so much to take in I think you could see it several times and see things you had not seen previously.
