There’s no other musical as acclaimed as The Lion King. It’s been seen by over 80 million people around the world. An amazing production, with animated sculptures on stage and enchanting music, this musical has become one of the major theatrical events of Madrid. The Lion King has completed a run of six consecutive seasons, making it the first musical in Spain to achieve this.
The Lion King is a journey to the African savannah, an explosion of sound and colour. Born out of the talent of such popular artists as Elton John, Tim Rice, Lebo M. and Hans Zimmer, and director Julie Taymor, the musical adaptation of the Disney movie merges a vast array of performing art disciplines from African, Western and Eastern origins. The Lion King’s success has led to adaptations all over the world, one of them staged in Madrid at Teatro Lope de Vega since October 2011.
Premiered in New York 17 years ago, The Lion King became one of the most successful musicals in Broadway history, making unprecedented earnings, receiving as many as 70 international awards, and being seen by over 80 million people since then. The theme, sets and magic are unmistakably Disney. The Lion King has run in 18 countries and was translated into eight different languages. Spain is the first Spanish-speaking country to stage the show through Stage Entertainment, producers of such big hits as Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables.
You’ll see a multicultural cast made of over 50 actors from all over the world who, alongside the dance and music, create a magical show that’ll remain in your memory for years to come.
