Was a great show. I really enjoyed being there with my family. My favorite things were not only the impressive costumes but also how the play was creating a connection between the audience and the actors. Especially the first scene was super catchy and directly took you in some kind of feeling of joy. Not a plus point for the... More

Great show, a must see somewhere in the world, if you go in Hamburg you also see a great theatre building. Beautiful art inside, good restaurant friendly staff with high service level.

Even if you don't understand German the renowned international story of The Lion King could be sung in Chinese and I would still know what's going on. My German is not great but that didn't matter...the story, songs, dance and music was all just mind blowing from start to finish. What they can do on such a small stage is... More

From the moment the curtains went up, my five year old daughter's jaw dropped and it remained so for the entire show. Even though the show was in German and we didn't speak or understand the language it was worth every penny. The set, costume, songs everything was an experience to remember. We went during the Easter holidays for the... More

Some of the stage settings are amazing, some average. The way of presenting animals like Giraffe, Elefant, Gazelle and Hyenas is impressive. The story is a little stupid. The music is the best especially the African choir sound and the drums at the seperate stages left and right of the auditorium. Incredible expensive especially if you will take the whole... More

I went there with my girlfriend. The show was awesome, really entertaining and so nice to see all the details of the stage work and great actors. We took the package with the dinner just before the show and the food was really good. We will go there again one day. Highly recommended!

Brilliant performance from start to finish , well worth the money which initially seemed extravagant. Enjoyed the performance even though it was in German.
