Tim Burton and Danny Elfman Pair for Movie Score Concert
The composer — and longtime Oingo Boingo frontman — also will sing live for the first time in 18 years at the event, set for Oct. 7 at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Frankenweenie director Tim Burton is teaming up with his go-to scorer Danny Elfman for a live concert celebrating their big-screen musical collaborations.
The show, set for Oct. 7 at London's Royal Albert Hall, will mark the first time many of Elfman's iconic scores for Burton's films -- including Batman, Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland -- will receive a public performance, courtesy of the BBC Concert Orchestra.
It also will be the first time in nearly 18 years that the former Oingo Boingo frontman will sing live, with Elfman re-creating various songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack.
"The idea of performing some of Jack Skellington's songs from The Nightmare Before Christmas live for the very first time is immensely exciting," Elfman tells The Telegraph.
The performance will be enhanced by original artwork from the films creating a visual backdrop, amounting to an evening that will be "something really special," Burton says.
