After London, New York and Paris, the young lion Simba comes to Melbourne. The hit film was totally reworked for the stage, creating a universal tale aimed at an adult audience, and indeed this sumptuous show reflects what Broadway does best.
The soundtrack has been enhanced: the show contains fifteen musical numbers, including five songs from the animated feature film written by Elton John and Tim Rice.
They have composed three new songs in a pop-rock style. To magnify the African context of this colourful story, new songs were specially written by Lebo M, a South African musician.
The show has won numerous awards worldwide, including six prestigious Tony Awards.
