I watched the video probably hundreds of times with my kids when they were young so knew the story well. I thought they did a great job of the costumes for the animals, very creative. The sets and costumes were amazing, but the singing was not fantastic in my opinion. And we found that some of the actors, the two lion brothers in particular, did not speak clearly and we had a hard time understanding what they said. The two young people who played the young lions were fantastic. All in all we enjoyed it, we had front row balcony seats which were great, we had a wonderful view of the stage and goings on. I did bring binoculars to see the makeup and costumes in more detail which I would recommend.
