The award-winning musical makes a triumphant return to Dublin on the 23rd of December for a limited 6 week run!

With an incredible cast of more than 50 actors, singers, and dancers, the story of The Lion King roars into life using spectacular masks, puppets, costumes mixed with incredible entertainers to bring to life the story of Simba’s epic adventures as he struggles with the responsibilities of adulthood and becoming King!

The landmark musical, which has now been seen by over 100 million people worldwide, last visited Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in 2013, thrilling a total of 137,818 theatre goers on its previous run. Having played in more than 100 hundred cities in 20 countries over the past 22 years, The Lion King’s worldwide gross exceeds that of any film, Broadway show or other entertainment title in box office history.

The original score from the animated movie was expanded for the stage and now features 15 musical numbers. As well as completely new songs, South African composer Lebo M created an evocative blend of African rhythms and chorales, with additional materials by Julie Taymor and Mark Mancina.
Elton John and Tim Rice have also added three new numbers to their original five that they wrote for the award-winning score of the animated film. The resulting sound of The Lion King is now a fusion of Western popular music and the distinctive sounds and rhythms of Africa, including the Academy Award-winning Can You Feel the Love Tonight, The Circle of Life, Hakuna Matata and the haunting Shadowland.

Less than a 10-minute stroll from the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, the Grand Canal hotel is ideally located for theatre goers, plus if you take advantage of our Theatre Package, this provides everything you need for an unforgettable and special night.
