See Disney's The Lion King at the Bristol Hippodrome

The award-winning musical from Disney has become one of the most successful shows of Broadway and the West End. Based on the 1994 animation, it reimagines the story of Simba with groundbreaking creatives and Tony Award-winning direction. The Lion King musical has now sold billions of dollars worth of tickets across the world, and continues to be a staple of the West End programme. The stage adaptation of The Lion King made waves when it first opened at the Orpheum Theatre in Minnesota in 1997. It powerfully brought the characters and the Serengeti Plains to life, breaking barriers in the world of theatre. The Lion King musical travelled to Broadway and later the West End – and has now been seen by over 95 million happy theatre-goers! Acclaimed director Julie Taymor has been praised for directing and designing the show. Her unique vision transformed the beloved children’s classic into an astonishing theatrical experience. Expect to see imaginative puppetry, inspired mask designs and spectacular special effects . Taymor won a handful of awards for her tireless dedication to The Lion King. Her accolades include a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Costume Design and Tony Award for Best Musical and Best Direction of a Musical. The show itself has won over 20 awards, spread across its creative team and cast. Today, her legacy lingers on as The Lion King continues to sell out venues across the globe. The musical revisits the evocative and emotive spirit of Africa. Beyond the innovative costumes and sets, the soundtrack to the musical is equally as moving as the film. It features all the favourites like ‘Circle of Life’, ‘I Just Can’t Wait To Be King’, and ‘Hakuna Matata’, as well as a great original score. Tickets for Disney’s The Lion King are on sale now.

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.
