Africa is waking up. Day breaks over the vastness of the savannah, with its procession of amplified sounds and noises. The glowing dawn sees the animals gather. A new day is born... and a new life.

Welcome to the Kingdom of the Lion King!

In the depths of this Africa that lives to the rhythm of its beating heart, there is a path full of pitfalls that leads to maturity. For a young lion cub just born, the wonderful cycle of life begins.

Simba comes into the world under a radiant sun. In front of the entire animal kingdom, he is proudly presented as the future successor to his father, King Mufasa. However, his carefree youth is brutally ended by the treachery of his uncle Scar, who arrogates power to himself.

Forced to take refuge in the dark jungle, Simba begins a long journey fraught with danger. But he matures through self-confidence, new friends and the awakening of his love for a mate. Finally, Simba decides to end his cycle by claiming his rightful throne.

Program and cast

Théâtre Mogador

Théâtre Mogador founded in 1913 and designed by Bertie Crewe, is a Parisian music hall theatre located at 25, rue de Mogador in the 9th district. It seats 1,800 people on three tiers.

In 1913 financier Sir Alfred Butt rented an area in Paris. Built according to English music hall principles and style during World War I, the theatre was originally named the "Palace Theatre", after the like-named one in London, in order to appeal to British soldiers. The name was shortly thereafter changed to "Théâtre Mogador", Mogador being the old name of the town of Essaouira in Morocco. The inauguration guests include President Wilson, in France to negotiate the Treaty of Versailles.

It was inaugurated by US president to be Franklin Delano Roosevelt April 1919.

From 1920 it was a Cine-variety, and gained fame with the performances of Sergei Diaghilev's "Ballets Russes", and with the Thés Mogador – performances of operettas and plays in the afternoon. Until the seventies, the Théâtre Mogador was mainly used for performances of operettas, including Mistinguett. Marcel Merkès was a regular performer here from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s.

An extensive renovation restored the building to new splendour in 1983. In 2005, it was purchased by the Stage Entertainment group (then called the "Stage Holding - The Theatre Group").

The theatre hosted the nineteenth Molière Awards (French theatre awards) on 9 May 2005.
