Excellent musical. Impeccable perfoming and setting. Amazing masks, make-up and costumes. Great music with African rythms. The essence of Africa right before your eyes. An outstanding show worth to be seen.

A shame that parts of the show are acted in playback, specially with this level of prices. The show itself is very nice, with incredible costumes and acting... but this can't be serious :(

This was such a lovely experience. The theatre hall, the show, the decor, the music and the actors were wonderful. We did not understand how the 2hrs passed. It was a great experience and I would recommend the show to people of all ages.

A beautiful and exciting show. The cast is incredible, they all act and sing wonderfully. The director's job is excellent. The choreographies are performed in a spectacular way, and the songs belong to a wide range of styles and varieties of music. Highly recommended. As...More

As many others have testified, this is a completely memorable show, for all ages, in a delightful, albeit small, theatre. For that reason, the cast and stage crew deserve particular praise. The sheer brilliance of the collective talent involved in such 'total theatre' is energising...More

Lope de Vega theater is so beautiful. The Lion King is an amazing story with magnificent music and amazing customs. They adapted the performance for the Spain public. You have to see.

Great show. Sit in the booths on the sides for comfortable/private seating. We really enjoyed those seats. The show and set design were wonderful. We are english speaking, but it was okay as we all know the story of Lion King enough to follow along....More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
