The Lion King is a one-of-a-kind majestic production that has established a new level of artistry for musical theatre from the staging, costumes and choreography, which are reminiscent of the vast savannahs of Africa and its distinctive animal characters. Embellishing the story with the use of several forms of puppetry, astonishing costumes and traditional African-style song, THE LION KING will now perform a total of 31 shows for Hong Kong audiences to enjoy this heartwarming phenomenal production.
