“A+ for the props”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

What a fun show. The costumes and stage show are so incredibly well done. I struggled a little with understanding the pronunciation as German isn't the first language for a fair few of the actors. Having said that - the acting was superb (Ska, Rafiki, Timon, Zazou, Pumba - wowsers!) Well worth seeing.

“A "don't miss" in Hamburg”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a spectacular performance. Even if you don't speak German you'll enjoy it. The costumes are incredible and the voices of the actors are fantastic. It's not just for kids either. Don't pass it up.

“Simply Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I remember how much I enjoyed seeing the Lion King movie and listening to the accompanying radio play over and over again when I was a little kid. This year we finally made it to Hamburg to see the German version of the Lion King enacted in a musical. I had just seen excerpts on German TV shows before, and I was enthralled. Even though the musical was not written in German but translated from English, the translators did an amazing job. The lyrics flow smoothly and everything just fits well.

Seeing the whole thing was just amazing. The costumes are very nicely crafted, the dancers and singers are all amazing artists and really captured us. The theater staff were friendly, the venue was nicely lit and clean and orderly, and the boat trip (included in the ticket) to the theater in the harbor added to the magic. It was a great experience, and I would recommend everyone who is taking a trip to Hamburg to go and see the show.
