The Lion King Albuquerque | Popejoy Hall

All hail for ‘The Lion King’ as it makes its way to Albuquerque this fall for a month-long run at the Popejoy Hall from October 4 to 30, 2016.

A Broadway sensation for so many reasons, ‘The Lion King’ sets itself apart from other musicals with its eye-popping and amazing visuals, marvelous songs and scores penned by Elton John, and a heartwarming tale that reminds us of the value of family, friendship, responsibility and appreciation for all of nature’s wonders, wonders which are vividly depicted in this theatrical adaptation of the Disney classic with its intricately crafted costumes and dazzling props and scenic designs that are both transporting and visually stimulating.

The performance running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission.
