The incredible Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre London
Lyceum Theatre has been hosting performances of the stunning Lion King ever since the musical made its London debut in the year 1999. A West End theatre, Lyceum's existence spans over four centuries now. The first theatre at the current site opened on 14th July 1834 and was designed by Samuel Beazley.
The acclaimed West End musical Lion King is an incredible show in the history of entertainment. The show is a theatrical adaptation of Disney's super-hit movie of the same name. In 1995 the piece won Best Music: Original Score for Hans Zimmer's score while Can You Feel The Love Tonight got Elton John and Tim Rice the Oscar for Best Music: Original Song. The other nominated songs of the musical include Circle Of Life and Hakuna Matata.
When the Lion King made its stage debut, it went to bag six Tony Awards and was nominated for eight Laurence Olivier Awards. The timeless classic has been directed by Julie Taymor who is also the brain behind the Olivier award winning stunning costumes of the show. The show transforms the stage of the Lyceum Theatre London into the African Plains that has been occupied by lions, giraffes, birds, zebras, hyenas and includes even a stampede of wildebeest.
