THE LORD OF THE RINGS returns to the stage in 2015 with the WORLD TOUR

Immensely popular with audiences of all ages this extraordinary show will continue with The Lord of the Rings World Tour.

The Lord of the Rings creative team is developing the touring version of the show, flexible enough to tour across the world while retaining the unique, thrilling and spectacular theatrical magic of the original Production.

The Lord of the Rings is a spectacular production created by Tony and Olivier Award winning director, Matthew Warchus, Tony and Olivier Award winning choreographer Peter Darling, and Tony and Olivier Award winning Set & Costume Designer, Rob Howell, the same creative team as on Matilda, The Royal Shakespeare Company’s multi-award winning musical now playing in London and on Broadway.

Paul Pyant’s lighting, special effects by Greg Meeh, sound by Simon Baker, and magic illusions by Paul Kieve complete the design Tour de Force.

A.R. Rahman (winner of The Golden Globe, the BAFTA and Oscar for best film score for Slumdog Millionaire, and a second Oscar for best original song), Värttinä (renowned in their native Finland and abroad), and Christopher Nightingale, have composed the thrilling score, with lyrics and libretto by Shaun McKenna and Matthew Warchus.

The Lord of the Rings has earned high praise from fans of Tolkien’s wonderful books and the general theatre-going public alike," said Laurie Battle, of Tolkien Enterprises. “It’s a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to step into the fantastic world of Middle-earth. The telling of this epic story on stage is a brilliant example of how magical the live theatrical experience can be.”

With a stunning score and one of the most beautiful and spectacular designs seen on stage, The Lord of the Rings World Tour will continue to bring to life the characters of Tolkien’s Middle-earth for audiences across the globe.
