For the first time, this concert event combines the brilliant film soundtrack with the gripping songs of the world-famous musical of the same name and emotionalizes them with screen animations.
The Oscar-winning soundtrack by film music legend Hans Zimmer has been shaping the globally successful animated film "The Lion King" for 27 years now: African rhythms and sounds paired with monumental, epic melodies. Sir Elton John's poignant hits such as "Hakuna Matata", "Circle of Life" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" are timeless and composed for eternity.
Together, the magical music of Sir Elton John and Hans Zimmer is a unique concert experience that touches and inspires all age groups in equal measure!
Hardly any other film soundtrack connects entire generations with so many personal emotions and memories as Disney's "The Lion King". The story of the lion cub Simba, who sets out in search of his place in the eternal cycle of life. An archaic basic structure that has fascinated generations.
The musical world success, based on the film but expanded to include a large number of new songs, led to an indescribable run on the coveted tickets. The additional compositions, which fit in perfectly with the iconic film songs, have been radiating a fairytale-like magic ever since the premiere 20 years ago.
70 performers, soloists, choir and orchestra, from the Cinema Festival Symphonics under the direction of Stephen Ellery from London, have already thrilled audiences with the concert performances of "Game of Thrones", "The Music of Star Wars" and "The Music of Harry Potter". The ensemble is known for its emotional, true-to-the-original, powerful sound, which immerses the audience directly in the movie themes.
This emotional experience is enriched by artfully drawn screen animations that transport the audience directly to the African savannah. Roaring lions, mighty elephants, playful leopards and of course Pumba the warthog and Timon the meerkat colorfully illustrate the eternal cycle of life.
