Julie Taymor, one of the world’s most innovative directors, brought a vast array of disciplines to THE LION KING, including extensive experience staging epic theatre and opera productions, exploring classic myths through ritualised puppetry, mask, and movement. THE LION KING was the first musical she directed in the commercial theatre, and Taymor made Broadway history by becoming the first woman to win the Tony Award® for ’Best Director of a Musical’.  

This acclaimed production has been seen by over 65 million people around the world, and in addition to the two UK productions can currently be seen in New York, Tokyo, Hamburg, Madrid and on tours of the US and Japan. The Lion King will also open in Brazil and Australia this year.
