The Lion King will be performed again in Sydney from 2013
People on flights to Sydney later in the year will have the chance to see one of the world’s most acclaimed stage shows live as The Lion King is set to return to the city.
The stage production of the Disney musical has been a huge hit around the world and will be performed in the city again from 2013.
It was last seen on stage in the Australian city from 2003 and 2005 and played to 1.5 million people.
It is hoped its return to the Capitol Theatre from December 2013 will be equally as successful this time around and will attract high numbers of tourists to the city.
Tourism minister George Souris said: “It’s the most successful musical in the world and it exceeded all expectation in 2003.”
In the meantime, people who take flights to Sydney could see some big names from Hollywood during their time in the city as the film Paradise Lost is set to begin shooting there during the summer.
