The Prince Of Egypt musical has music and lyrics by Wicked’s Stephen Schwartz and a book by Philip LaZebnik (Mulan and Pocahontas). Reimagining the beloved DreamWorks Animation film for the stage, the show transports audiences through the wonders of Ancient Egypt, where two young men will fulfil their world-changing destinies – one as Pharaoh, and the other as liberator of his people.
It’s the West End premiere production of the show, which will incorporate the Academy Award-winning song When You Believe, recorded by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey in 1998 and later selected by Simon Cowell as a winner’s single for The X Factor.
You can also look forward to this royal cast tackling songs including Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted, Through Heaven’s Eyes, when The Prince Of Egypt takes to the Dominion Theatre from Wednesday 5 February 2020.
