THE LORD OF THE RINGS – A MUSICAL TALE is coming home to Middle-earth later this year for a strictly limited season at The Civic, Auckland, Tāmaki Makaurau in New Zealand from 5th November 2024.

The highly anticipated production first premiered at The Watermill Theatre in the UK to great critical and audience acclaim, and has its US premiere this July at the prestigious Chicago Shakespeare Theater

This journey to the magical realms of Middle-earth tells the story of The Lord of the Rings from the Hobbits’ perspective, as J.R.R. Tolkien‘s trilogy of books is brought to life on the stage, performed by a stellar cast of multi-skilled actor-musicians.

Created under license from Middle-earth Enterprises (the owner of exclusive worldwide motion picture and stage rights for The Lord of the Rings), this adventure through the epic realm of Middle-earth has been beloved by generations of readers.

With book and lyrics by Shaun McKenna (Maddie, La Cava)  and Matthew Warchus (Groundhog Day) and original music by Academy Award winner A.R. Rahman (Bombay Dreams, Slumdog Millionaire), Finnish folk band Värttinä, and Tony Award winner Christopher Nightingale (Matilda the Musical), this theatrical event celebrates community, courage and camaraderie to create an unforgettable experience for longtime fans and newcomers alike.

The dynamic folk-inspired score is performed live by the company on stage, weaving together original music with storytelling. The New Zealand premiere comes fresh off the 70th anniversary of the publication of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first book in The Lord of the Rings trilogy which debuted in 1954.
