THE RYDGES POST
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.
