Brilliantly re-imagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney’s well-loved film was transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience in November 1997 and has since won over 70 major international theatre awards including the Tony Award for Best Musical. The musical has been seen by over 90 million people worldwide.

The Singapore season is part of an international tour which premiered in Manila, Philippines, on 4 May and will travel to Korea and Taiwan after Singapore. The international tour celebrates the musical’s 20th anniversary on stage and is the title’s 25th global production.

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, the musical explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music, including Elton John and Tim Rice’s Academy Award-winning Can You Feel The Love Tonight.

The musical features hundreds of intricate masks and puppets created by Taymor and Michael Curry, one of the world’s leading puppet experts. The mask design enables audiences to see the characters as animal and human at the same time, an effect Taymor dubs “the double effect”.
