See Disney's The Lion King at the Bristol Hippodrome

The award-winning musical first premiered in the West End in 1999. Two decades on, it has become a staple show of London's offering, and is embarking on its second UK tour from September 2019. The Lion King is based upon the children's animation released in 1994 by Disney. It remains close to the film, featuring the same characters, central storyline and outstanding soundtrack. Sir Elton John and Tim Rice collaborated to provide some of the most memorable songs of any Disney film, such as 'Circle of Life', 'I Just Can't Wait to be King', 'Hakuna Matata'. The musical also features additional tracks and subplots to keep audiences surprised. The production has secured several Tony Awards, including 'Best Musical', 'Best Costume Design' and 'Best Choreography'. One of the most impressive characteristics of the show is the innovative way animals are portrayed on stage. The Lion King broke barriers when it comes to puppetry and creations, where the four years invested in making them lead to a new way of experiencing theatre. Today, The Lion King has been seen around the world by over 85 million people, who no doubt thoroughly enjoyed themselves given the consistent rave reviews. With only its second ever UK and Ireland tour, tickets will likely fly so make sure you get your lion's share!

About

In the hundred years the Bristol Hippodrome has been open, it has delighted and intrigued visitors with some of the best in travelling theatre and entertainment. It is considered one of the UK’s major venues for The Arts, notorious for exhibiting world-class musicals from Broadway and the West End, and bringing Bristolians a versatile programme of opera, ballet, pantomimes, comedy and more. Its status as the Bristol West End is backed by the many shows it has received since opening in 1912. Matilda, Miss Saigon, Hairspray and Wicked have all toured at the Hippodrome; The Lion King kickstarted its regional tour there, and Mary Poppins and the English National Ballet’s The Nutcracker performed their world premieres at the venue. The Hippodrome even has its own choir that supports its array of musicals. The theatre was designed by Frank Matcham, a renowned theatrical architect of the late Victorian and Edwardian era. One of its special remaining features from Matcham is the dome located above the stalls, which can retract on clear evenings to reveal the night sky. It is believed to be the only operating dome in theatres across the UK. More contemporary embellishments include the Stairway of Stars, where visitors can flaunt their names in the grand foyer for up to two years. The theatre has weathered it's fair share of disasters, having survived World War II but succumbing to a fire three years later. However, it still retains its grand stature as a must visit attraction for theatre lovers.
