This brand new orchestra event features Danny Elfman's famous film scores brought to life on stage by orchestra, and enhanced by visuals on the big screen of Tim Burton's original film sketches, drawings and story boards. Celebrating the nearly three decade-long partnership of two of Hollywood's top creators, this event features films from a fascinating back catalogue of classics such as Beetlejuice, Batman & Batman Returns, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Alice in Wonderland, this concert explores the collaborative relationship between music and storytelling and the process and importance that it has in filmmaking.

Here is what Tim Burton and Danny Elfman have to say about the upcoming premiere performance:

"I've always heard Danny's scores performed live during our recording sessions for the films we've collaborated on,” says Tim Burton. "For others to finally be able to hear his music live, at such a historic venue as the Royal Albert Hall, is really something special."

Danny Elfman adds, “I really look forward to revisiting this body of work, which has been such a huge part of my life, and bringing it to the concert stage. And the idea of performing some of Jack Skellington's songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas live for the very first time is immensely exciting.”
