Lyceum Theatre

Disney’s award-winning musical THE LION KING is now in its 16th year at London’s Lyceum Theatre. Julie Taymor’s reimagining of Disney’s beloved animated film is a theatrical event you will never forget.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative rhythms of Africa, this spectacular production explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music to tell the timeless story of Simba and his epic journey to fulfil his destiny as King of the Pridelands.

Julie Taymor, one of the world’s most innovative directors, brought a vast array of disciplines to THE LION KING, including extensive experience staging epic theatre and opera productions, exploring classic myths through ritualised puppetry, mask, and movement. THE LION KING was the first musical she directed in the commercial theatre, and Taymor made Broadway history by becoming the first woman to win the Tony Award® for ’Best Director of a Musical’.

This acclaimed production has been seen by over 75 million people around the world, and in addition to the London production can currently be seen in New York, Hamburg, Tokyo, Madrid, Mexico City, Melbourne, Basel and on tour across North America, and Japan.
