The musical stage adaption of The Lion King has made history as one of the most bold theatrical projects of Disney Theatrical Productions. The musical pulled out all the stops with unique music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice, with additional music from esteemed composers, including the legendary Hans Zimmer. The musical has captivated fans, everyone, across the world. It has a story reminiscent to the 1994 animated film, but the stage adaptation has a deeper depth, the music has been given an African music approach, and the costumes are out of this world!

And now that it’s on its 26th year since premiering in 1997, it remains one of the top musicals.
“Where are you, really, anyway? The location is supposed to be a theater, a thoroughfare never thought of as a gateway to Eden. Yet somehow you have fallen into what appears to be a primal paradise,” says the New York Times’ Ben Brantly after attending the Broadway production in 1997.
Another critic, John Simon wrote, “Come to The Lion King with two pairs of eyes, one ear, and half a brain. You will be bombarded by some of the most stunning and breathtaking sights theater can offer from before and behind, so eyes in the back of your head will come in handy.”
