Live-To-Picture Concert Events

Danny Elfman's Music from the Films of Tim Burton

Two-Time Emmy Award Winning Production, including Danny Elfman winning for “Outstanding Music Direction” (2016)! Featuring music from BATMAN, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, BIG FISH and others.

“For all the costumed spectacle and fun, this event was a substantive, rich and revealing concert. Mr. Elfman’s music and Mr. Burton’s cinematic images are intricately enmeshed… Mr. Elfman took a more creative approach in creating this program. He devised suites for orchestra and chorus, fashioning his scores into sections of a two-part, evening-length composition with its own musical integrity…At one point, a slinky, sad waltz melody wafts from the strings ['Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985)']. Gradually, accents are nudged by dissonant chords, and the music morphs into a hard-bitten dance. Imagine Prokofiev in Hollywood.”
Anthony Tommasini, New York Times

“… an inspiring example of how to do a film music concert… 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

“Something special happened in the old Hall… It was easy to see and feel that unique, timeless connection between music and storytelling that can often be over-done or drift off insignificantly into the background… A truly tremendous evening and celebration… Art at its finest.”
The Hollywood News

“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

“… This concert was impeccable. The projections added so much to the performance, brining Tim Burton’s presence into the venue… the performance itself, in all respects, could not have been any better… Those three long standing ovations made it very clear what the audience thought. I have no doubt that every one of them would love a repeat performance.”
