Monday 7 March 2011 @ 19:18 - GMT

The Spanish premiere of The Lion King is to open October 21 at Lope de Vega Theatre. This will mark two firsts: as the largest stage musical ever presented in Spain and the first time the show has been performed in Spanish.

Mayor Gallardón emphasised the importance of the magnitude of this production for the Spanish capital, "Madrid is grateful, committed and proud to be the host of the biggest musical production ever presented in Spain."

The show, which has seven productions now running across the world, has previously been translated into Japanese, German, Korean, French, Dutch and Mandarin.
