Film Legend Hans Zimmer and Sir Elton John
The Oscar-winning soundtrack by film music legend Hans Zimmer has shaped the globally successful animated film "The Lion King" for 27 years: African rhythms and sounds paired with monumental, epic melodies.
Sir Elton John's poignant hits like "Hakuna Matata", "Circle of Life" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" are timeless and composed for eternity.
Together, the magical music of Sir Elton John and Hans Zimmer are a unique concert experience that touches and inspires listeners of all ages!
Hardly any other film soundtrack sparks as many personal emotions and memories as Disney's "The Lion King" does for entire generations. The story of the lion cub Simba, who is looking for his place in the eternal circle of life. An archaic basic structure that fascinates over generations.
The worldwide musical success, based on the film but expanded by a large number of new songs, caused an indescribable run for the coveted tickets. The additional compositions, which fit perfectly into the iconic film songs, have enchanted the audience time and time again since the premiere 20 years ago.
70 performers, soloists, choir and orchestra of the Cinema Festival Symphonics, conducted by Stephen Ellery from London, already thrills the audience with the concert performances of "Game of Thrones", "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter".
The ensemble is known for their emotional, true-to-the-original, powerful sound that immerses viewers directly in the film's themes.
This emotional, sonorous experience is animated by video clips that take viewers straight to the African savannah. Majestic lions, primal elephants, elegant leopards and of course the warthog Pumba and the meerkat Timon colourfully illustrate the eternal cirlce of life.
