The Nightmare Before Christmas
Minnesota Orchestra conducted by Sarah Hicks - Orchestra Hall
This concert has been canceled.
Program Info: Danny Elfman - The Nightmare Before Christmas
Spread the joy (and terror) with filmmaker Tim Burton’s macabre mashup of Halloween and Christmas, a movie favorite since 1993. This spooky spectacular returns, with the Minnesota Orchestra playing Danny Elfman’s frightfully original score live, while the scary story plays on the big screen. Scare up some friends and come to Orchestra Hall!
Did You Know? In addition to writing the songs and score, legendary Hollywood composer Danny Elfman also provide the singing voice for the movie’s main character, Jack Skellington. The story for The Nightmare Before Christmas began as a poem producer Tim Burton wrote while working for Disney as an animator. To provide the full range of emotion (and to make for efficient filming), around 400 different heads were used to animate Jack Skellington alone.
