San Francisco’s most eagerly awaited stage production ever will return to the SHN Orpheum Theatre stage this fall.

Giraffes strut, birds swoop, gazelles leap and as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly emerges from the mist. This is Disney's THE LION KING.

More than 65 million people around the world have come to discover the thrill and the majesty of this truly one-of-a-kind experience that Time Magazine calls "awe-inspiring." On stage, director Julie Taymor's creative vision combines with Elton John and Tim Rice's rhythmic score to create a breathtaking spectacle that brings the Serengeti to life before your very eyes.

One of the most successful productions in Broadway history, THE LION KING won six 1998 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical and Best Direction of a Musical (making Taymor the first woman bestowed with the honor). Since opening on Broadway, the show has earned more than 70 major arts awards, has been translated into seven different languages and performed in 15 different countries on five continents.

Don't miss your chance to experience this landmark entertainment event! THE LION KING returns to San Francisco this fall for a strictly limited engagement at the Orpheum Theatre.
