Madrid’s vibrant theatre scene boasts a standout highlight: El Rey León Musical (The Lion King), a show that has captivated millions worldwide.

Now in its 12th season, this spectacular production calls Madrid’s Gran Vía—often referred to as the Spanish ‘Broadway’—its home. In this article, we explore why El Rey León is one of Madrid’s best musicals, how to secure your tickets, and the top accommodation options for your visit.


What is El Rey León Musical in Madrid about?

El Rey León musical in Madrid closely follows the plot of Disney’s 1994 animated film, with some additions and extensions to enhance the theatrical experience. The show transports viewers to the African savannah with impressive scenic design by Richard Hudson.

Through moments of joy, tragedy, and triumph, El Rey León captivates the hearts of audiences of all ages. The musical features beloved songs by Elton John and Tim Rice, including “Circle of Life,” “Hakuna Matata,” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” along with an evocative score by Hans Zimmer and captivating African rhythms by Lebo M.
