Composer Danny Elfman and visionary Hollywood filmmaker Tim Burton have created a unique concert experience, blending music and visuals to celebrate the nearly three decades long partnership of two of Hollywood's top creators. This live concert features Danny Elfman's famous film scores brought to life on stage by orchestra and choir, enhanced by visuals on the big screen of Tim Burton’s original film sketches, drawings and storyboards.
“…a raucous and unforgettable evening powered by a full orchestra and choir…It was an inspiring example of how to do a film music concert that should be forever imitated – a thoughtfully curated and varied program honoring the important marriage the music has to images while also letting the music breathe and come to life on its own. – LA Weekly
“A celebration of a longstanding artistic alliance, the concert features suites derived and reorganized by Elfman from his own compositions for Burton’s films, while images of Burton’s feature-related artwork are seen on-screen.” – The Seattle Times
"As imaginative and inspiring as Tim Burton himself, this exquisite performance of Danny Elfman’s genius at the Royal Albert Hall is dramatic storytelling in its purest form...Utterly evocative from the outset – chilling, rousing, innocent and epic – Elfman has the incredible ability to bring Tim Burton’s pictures to unique and individual life through music." —The Upcoming
