The Lion King’s Return To The Lion City Is A Roaring Triumph

Arts Coverage

Having first brought the Pride Lands to the Lion City in 2011 to roaring success, The Lion King comes full circle as the Circle of Life takes centre stage once again at Marina Bay Sands. As a worldwide phenomenon, The Lion King is a cultural cornerstone and is a generation-defining symbol of childhood for many. Those who remember the animated film with fondness are sure to be captivated again by life that the theatrical production breathes into its characters.

The world-building of The Lion King is impeccable in the thought and care that went into adapting the locales of the original film. Iconic sets like Pride Rock, the Tree of Life and the Elephant Graveyard are faithfully reproduced on stage with a beautiful dynamic set that complemented the story’s progression.

 

The commitment to capturing the spirit of the original animated film does not, however, mean that the production is a carbon copy of the animated film. Various elements have been uniquely adapted for the theatrical production that adds layered nuances to the characters and the story.
