THE RYDGES POST

Entertainment/Theatre ian 12/15/2013

The latest incarnation of The Lion King is an amazing production with dazzling sets, dancing, singing, costumes, puppetry and energy… these elephants gloriously galumphing down the aisles are a far cry from the theatre in 1916 when the Wirth Circus Hippodrome had real elephants appearing on stage.

The opening night saw a spontaneous standing ovation and a visiting celebrity attended a pre-premiere matinee with her six kids and went back stage to meet the cast and write a review on the signature wall… “Amazing show! Much love, Angelina Jolie.”

It is anticipated that the new production of The Lion King will deliver $100million to New South Wales. If you are coming from out of town and need accommodation, Capitol Square Hotel by Rydges is tight next door, Rydges World Square a short walk away and if you are flying in, there’s Rydges Sydney Airport to make arrival and departure easy.

Here is the Lion King video teaser – you will immediately see how it a captivating, moving spectacle for all ages.
