After 24 years on Broadway, “The Lion King” reigns as one of the most popular stage musicals in the world. Finally, the show returns to New Orleans Oct. 27-Nov. 13 at the historic Saenger Theatre.
Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, “The Lion King” has made theatrical history with six productions worldwide running over 15 years – four of those running 20 or more years.
The show’s musical score reflects a fusion of the distinctive sounds and rhythms of Africa and Western popular music, including Elton John and Tim Rice’s songs from the original animated film.
