Get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience as the film favourite is brought to life in a thrilling concert performance.

Taking place at the Al Mayassa Theatre, Qatar National Convention Centre, on April 12, the evening will include a screening of the feature length 1994 animated version of Disney’s The Lion King in Arabic with English subtitles, alongside a full orchestra performing iconic tunes from the movie.

Spoiler alert for those who may have missed it the first (or even second or third) time around. The film tells the story of young lion cub Simba and his adventures on the road to becoming The Lion King. When the little lion’s father, the mighty Mufasa, King of the Pride Lands, is killed by his scheming brother Scar in an attempt to snatch the throne, Simba is tricked into believing the death is his fault.

After fleeing into exile he grows up with a group of carefree outcasts including his great friends Timon and Pumbaa, a meercat and a warthog, having many scrapes and thrills along the way. Eventually the young lion learns the truth about his father’s death and returns to his home lands to challenge Scar and take his place in the Circle of Life as the rightful king.

Listen out for unforgettable songs such as Circle of Life and Hakuna Matata, as the concert brings to life the music of Oscar- and GRAMMY- winning stars Elton John, lyricist Tim Rice, and composer Hans Zimmer, plus African vocal and choir arrangements by South African producer and composer Lebo M.

The screening will begin at 6pm and tickets are priced from QR120 to QR425. ✤
