The Lion King in London

The Lion King, a roaring stage success!

Transport yourself and your children to the magical world of the African bush, where life-size animals roam the stage and a magical tale of triumph against evil unfolds. With six coveted Tony Awards, a Grammy award for the show album, and two prestigious Olivier awards under its belt, The Lion King is a real show stopper of a musical for the whole family.

What is The Lion King musical about?

Join little Simba, the next king of the Pride, in his fight to take his rightful place on the throne. Simba the lion cub is looking forward to becoming the king of the Pride. But his wicked Uncle Scar scuppers his plans and when tragedy strikes, Simba runs away, leaving Uncle Scar and the nasty hyenas in charge. Under their mis-management, the Pride Lands soon become barren and everyone who lives there is in big trouble. Can Simba and his good friends Timon and Pumbaa solve the problem, and can he restore the essential Circle of Life?

The best of Disney magic transferred to the West End stage

The Lion King the movie was absolutely fantastic. But good as it is, it doesn’t prepare you for the sheer magic of this superb stage production. The Lion King features a host of amazing creatures in fantastic costumes, superb choreography and an intimate stage experience you never get with 2D film.

Elton John’s runaway best-selling musical score, together with Tim Rice’s unforgettable lyrics, makes this show really special. Elton’s song "Circle of Life" sets the stage, giving a powerful introduction to this delightful tale about coming of age that’s just as relevant to humans as it is to the creatures the show portrays.

A roaring success of a musical, attracting full-house audiences since opening in 1997, it’s 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. Never mind the children… adults who see The Lion King are equally astonished by the sheer skill and realism of the musical’s animal puppet stars.

Apparently, it took an enormous seventeen thousand hours to make the puppets and masks. A hundred and fourteen people are involved in creating each showing. And more than fifty million of us, from all over the world, have enjoyed The Lion King on stage so far.

The Lion King songs

Expect to sing along to twenty fabulous show tunes including the ones which made it big from the Disney film. Songs like "I Just Can't Wait to Be King", "Circle of Life" and "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" are there, but there's also the addition of some more music which helps develop the storytelling of this show.

Magnificient

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.

The costumes are unique!

De kostuums waren fantastisch, het is zeker een uniek spektakel. Het is minder mijn ding, duidelijk een dansmusical. Het hele openingsnummer geweend, zo mooi! Ze proberen enorm aan te sluiten bij de film, wat niet echt mogelijk is in musical. Dat levert een prachtige scene op voor 'the stampede', maar ook zwakke dialogen die niet vertalen in een musical.
