Julie Taymor’s spectacular adaptation of Disney’s award-winning film uses masks and puppetry to create pure theatrical magic.

“The West End production of the Lion King turns 20 in 2019. There are very few shows that have been running that long which still feel fresh & relevant, but the Lion King is one of them. It’s visually spectacular and Elton John’s music is timeless.”


Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi award-winningmusical will redefine your expectations of 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 hisdestined role as King of the Pridelands.
