London’s theatres are gearing up to reopen this autumn and Dominion Theatre’s The Prince Of Egypt musical is back with a royal bang.
After months of having to stay at home, you’ll not only be transferred to the shimmery London West End but to the wonders of Ancient Egypt. Follow two young brothers whose privileged paths suddenly become divided, as their secret past leads each to a whole new destiny. With one facing a future as Pharaoh and the other set on a quest of freedom and identity, The Prince of Egypt musical will take your family on a wondrous journey that will change history forever.
Musical theatre’s top stars come together to form The Prince of Egypt’s cast, from Luke Brady of Sweeney Todd and Liam Tamne from The Phantom of the Opera to Christine Allado and Alexia Khadime from the likes of Hamilton, Wicked and The Lion King. The Prince of Egypt is based on the dazzling DreamWorks film of the same name and features the Academy Award-winning song ‘When You Believe’, whose powerful lyrics touched hearts worldwide. The song became a global hit for both Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, not to mention a winner’s single for The X Factor UK, and has made The Prince of Egypt’s soundtrack one of Broadway’s best. Written by Philip LaZebnik - who we can thank for Disney’s Mulan and Pocahontas - and with music and lyrics by Wicked’s Stephen Schwartz, The Prince of Egypt is set to leave audiences in awe this autumn.
