The Lion King: Where Percussion and Pictures Paint an Iconic Scene

From Hollywood to the West End, The Lion King has been an enduring success since 1994. Taking the famous story of Simba and his turbulent ascension to king, the stage show is a one-way ticket to the Pride Lands. With mesmeric scenery drawing you in, you?ll almost feel part of the action as you journey through Simba?s world. To bring The Lion King to life, the show?s original director, Julie Taymor, combined live performers and innovative props. Creating a visual feast that?s since redefined how musicals could and should look, The Lion King really is an all-singing, all-dancing affair.

Why is the Lion King a Roaring Success?

Since it debuted in 1997 at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, The Lion King has become the highest-grossing musical in history. As well as breaking Broadway running records, the show has taken the West End by storm. Today, with more than £8 billion grossed internationally, The Lion King is an undeniable success. In fact, even for those that aren?t inspired by the story of Simba, the show remains a musical hit. Why? For many return viewers, the staging and styling are simply unrivalled. According to The Guardian?s Michael Billington, the show remains ?kaleidoscopically brilliant? to this day. With the heart of the Serengeti beating in time with musical magic from Elton John, Lebo M and Tim Rice, audiences can?t help but feel part of the action. Indeed, as birds swoop down the aisles and giraffes glide across the stage, everyone is immersed in this Disney fantasy.

What the Lion King Critics Say

"The Lion King's absolute theatricality is astonishing." TimeOut Magazine.

"The show was, and is, a shrewd synthesis of global Avant-Garde techniques. It provides a feast for the eyes." Michael Billington - The Guardian.
