Disney’s The Lion King returns to the London stage this Summer

Disney's The Lion King is set to return to Covent Garden's Lyceum Theatre from 29 July 2021.

About the Show

Disney’s award-winning musical THE LION KING is now in its 21st year at London’s Lyceum Theatre.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, THE LION KING will redefine your expectations of theatre. This spectacular production 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.

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 on Broadway, and Taymor made history by becoming the first woman to win the Tony Award® for ‘Best Director of a Musical’.

Julie Taymor’s reimagining of Disney’s beloved animated film is a theatrical event you will never forget.
