The Lion King

Live at the Lyceum Theatre in London


The Lion King

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi-award winning musical 'The Lion King' will redefine your expectations of theatre.

A spectacular visual feast, this adaptation of Disney's much-loved film transports you to a dazzling world 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 his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

Critics' Reviews

of The Lion King

Witty... Marvellous... Perfection


The Independent

The Lion King's broad brushstrokes deliver nothing less than a sweeping panorama of a continent in dignified motion and a deeply felt celebration of life.


The Telegraph

It lights up the West End with the blaze of Taymor’s fabulous imagination.


The Evening Standard

Taymor, as director, is the organising visual spirit behind the show and she produces a child’s garden of delights.
