The Lion King Hong Kong – a Disney spectacular
More than two decades after its US premiere, one of the most beloved musical adaptations finally made its way to the Pearl of the Orient in 2019. Don’t miss out on the chance to see it for yourself – take a look at the range of The Lion King Hong Kong tickets currently available on StubHub.
See the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit
Based on the same-named Disney animation that broke all kinds of box office records in 1994, "The Lion King" first made it to the Broadway stage in 1997. Featuring many of the songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice for the hit movie – including "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", "Hakuna Matata" and "Circle of Life" – alongside several new pieces of music, the production became an instant hit with the public. Directed by Julie Taymor, "The Lion King" famously uses a mix of large hollow puppets and actors wearing elaborate animal costumes to tell its charming and often tear-jerking story about a young lion prince’s journey to the throne. The show went on to win six Tony Awards in 1998, including Best Musical, and has since toured everywhere from Sao Paolo to Sydney. In 2019, the same year that Jon Favreau’s big screen adaptation hit the screens, "The Lion King" finally made its way to Hong Kong for the first time.

Bringing the African savannah to the stage
The 25th global production of "The Lion King" first premiered in Manila in 2018 before moving onto South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, eventually reaching Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Expo in December 2019. Performed in the English language but also subtitled in Chinese, the show brings the wild landscapes and creatures of the African savannah to the stage with an innovative array of costumes and set designs. In this unique production, Jordan Shaw played leading lion cub Simba, Mthokozisi Emkay Khanyile portrayed his father Mufasa, and Antony Lawrence took on the villainous role of Scar, while other notable cast members included Pierre van Heerden as Pumbaa, Nick Mercer as Timon, Ntsepa Pitjeng as Rafiki, and Amanda Kunene as Nala. Certain audience members should expect to come within inches of these characters during the moments in which they run down the aisles with wild abandon.
