The Lion King

Bucket list musical for theatre fans

Disney’s The Lion King is a spectacle like nothing else – exploding onto the stage in a mirage of vibrant colour, rhythm and life at the Lyceum Theatre.

Julie Taymor’s visionary adaptation of the classic Disney animated film was game-changing when it premiered in 1997. Fusing puppetry and design with traditional African dance, costume and song, this groundbreaking production brings every character to life.

The Lion King transports audiences to the plains of the Serengeti as the story charts Simba’s journey from a naive cub to fulfilling his destiny as King of the Pridelands.

The musical includes all of the classic songs from the film, written by Elton John and Tim Rice, including “Circle of Life”, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Hakuna Matata”.

This enduring musical has long reigned as one of the best London shows for kids and adults alike. Get The Lion King tickets for all the family to gasp in awe as the animals of Pride Rock swoop, prowl, roar and so much more in front of your eyes!

Best seats

Get Lion King tickets in the Stalls to get the very best view of the stunning animals of the Savannah as they make their way through the audience. Often seats towards the sides can give still excellent views, despite being a slightly cheaper ticket, due to their sideways nature.
