The Starlight Express Theater is a record-breaking theater. Constructed in the record time of just one year, it was the first theater ever built exclusively for a single musical. Since presenting its first performance in 1988, 16 million people have enjoyed the show in the Starlight Express Theater.

You, too, can experience the show close up and in person! While the actors are skating around the stage at speeds up to 60 km/h, the elaborate lighting system, with its 800 spotlights, 60 color changers, and lasers, continually bath the stage in changing lighting moods to fit the action. The heart of the stage is the nine-ton bridge that can be rotated in any direction, constantly creating new levels.

Spectacular technology and action-packed musical scenes blend together to make the musical, STARLIGHT EXPRESS, a show without equal.
