Epic Mongolian show The Mongol Khan to play the London Coliseum

The Mongol Khan, a lavish, large-scale production hailing from Mongolia will play at the London Coliseum for 2-weeks only this Winter.

Running from 17 November to 2 December 2023, The Mongol Khan is billed “as an introduction to the country and its history, giving audiences and would-be travellers a taste of the rich culture of this remarkable nation.”

Written in 1998 by renowned Mongolian writer and poet Lkhagvasuren Bavuu, The Mongol Khan – a play with music – was revived in April 2022 at the Mongolian State Academic Theatre of Drama.

Based on historical events, the show explores the evolution of Mongolian culture through a gripping 2000 year old story, brought to life with a stunning original score, dance, puppetry, and elaborate sets and costumes inspired by traditional nomadic culture. Featuring an ensemble of 70 performers., the show has played to sold-out houses in Ulaanbaatar for the last year.

The Mongolian creators are collaborating with an international team of world-renowned artists and practitioners on the show’s development, including prolific historian and travel writer John Man, an expert in Mongolian history and culture.

This production aims to celebrate 60 years of Anglo-Mongolian relations and cultural exchange. Oyun-Erdene Luvsannamsrai, The Prime Minister of Mongolia said: ‘Welcome to Mongolia! 2023-2025 are ‘The Years to Visit Mongolia’. We are landlocked, but not mind-locked so come and see what we have to offer and enjoy a holiday of a lifetime.

‘To celebrate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Mongolia and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the classic play The Mongol Khan will play at the London Coliseum. The very first time a Mongolian play has been presented to a European audience, The Mongol Khan offers audiences a unique insight into the mentality and philosophy of early eastern civilisations.’
