Masks, puppets and striking costumes, have done the miraculous enlivening up of the magnificent show The Lion King.

The epic saga of young cub Simba revolves around his responsibilities to reclaim his kingdom back from the evil uncle Scar. The brilliant simplicity of The Lion King has been beautifully directed and designed by Julie Taymor, the Tony award winner.

 With the occupancy of 2100, Lyceum Theatre London is positioned in Westend Theatre in the City of Westminster on Wellington Street. On 14th July 1834, the current site marked its opening and was designed by Samuel Beazley. A balcony was overhanging the dress circle which makes the building unique. With the stunning collaboration of Peto & Grissell, Lyceum Theatre was constructed.

 Bertie Crewe reconstructed the beautifully ornamented Lyceum Theatre in rococo style in the year 1904. Even after renovation, Beazley’s façade and grand portico had been retained. In the year 1939, the building was closed and was about to be destroyed. However, it was transformed into Mecca Ballroom in the year 1951. Holohan Architects restored it for theatrical purpose in the year 1996.

 The present house was opened in the year 1834 with frontage on Wellington Street with the name of Theatre Royal Lyceum and English Opera House. Beazley designed the theatre with the cost of £40,000. During the initial years, composer John Barnett produced many popular works such as The Mountain Sylph, Fair Rosamund, Farinelli and many more.

 Some of the notable productions at the Lyceum Theatre are Jesus Christ Superstar, Oklahoma and The Lion King. So come and feel the eternal magic of mesmerizing London show The Lion King with your near and dear ones at the Lyceum Theatre!
