The Krakow Film Music Festival will present a screening of Walt Disney Animation Studio’s feature “The Lion King” (1994) with Hans Zimmer’s OSCAR®-winning musical score performed live to the film. The concert will be led by conductor Erik Ochsner and performed by the Beethoven Academy Orchestra, the Choir of the Krakow Philharmonic and Pro Musica Mundi.


The original 1994 movie features unforgettable music by an award-winning team. The authors of the enchanting songs are OSCAR® and GRAMMY®-winning superstar Elton John and OSCAR® and GRAMMY®-winning lyricist Tim Rice. The score was composed by OSCAR® and GRAMMY®-winner Hans Zimmer, while African vocal and choir arrangements are works of GRAMMY®-winning South African producer and composer Lebo M.

Despite the passage of thirty years since its premiere, the original version of “The Lion King” remains among the most successful animated films. The power of the story’s impact can be seen in cultural works, such as video games, a GRAMMY®-nominated Beyoncé album and a musical staged thousands of times – including the stages of New York, Los Angeles and London. As a result, the story set in the reality of East Africa has reached a wide audience, raising awareness of the beauty of the natural landscape and the value of friendship.

After a several years’ break, the Krakow Film Music Festival once again invites audiences to the largest arena in Poland. TAURON Arena Krakow is a state-of-the-art space offering unparalleled possibilities. More than eleven thousand people will be able to attend the concert. Thanks to audio description, the film will also be available to blind and visually impaired persons.
