The Lion King — The Music Live in Concert

Stadtcasino Basel
Friday, 13 January

For the first time in this concert event, the brilliant movie soundtrack is combined with the gripping songs of the musical world success of the same name. The Oscar-winning soundtrack by film music legend Hans Zimmer has been shaping the globally successful cartoon "The Lion King" for 27 years now with African rhythms and sounds paired with monumental, epic melodies. Add to that Sir Elton John's poignant hits “Hakuna Matata,” “Circle of Life,” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.”
Whole generations associate as many personal emotions and memories with hardly any other film soundtrack as with Disney's "The Lion King," the story of the lion cub Simba who is looking for his place in the eternal cycle of life. It’s an archaic basic structure in which almost all of us can find ourselves! The worldwide success of the musical, based on the film but expanded by numerous new songs, led to an indescribable run for the coveted tickets.
In this concert accompanied by screen animations, 80 performers—soloists, choir, and orchestra from the Cinema Festival Symphonics, conducted by Steven Ellery from London—are delighting the audience, accompanied by screen animations. The ensemble is known for their emotional, true-to-original, powerful sound!
Tickets are CHF 62.10-117.50.
