Tim Burton - Tim Burton Working On London Soundtrack Show

Director Tim Burton is teaming up with a British orchestra to produce an innovative live show featuring renditions of his most famous film scores.

The Batman filmmaker is putting together a screen presentation of original drawings and artwork from throughout his career which will be shown to the sound of his movie music.

The show at London's Royal Albert Hall will feature the BBC Concert Orchestra and famed composer Danny Elfman, who created scores for many of the director's films including Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Elfman sings as lead character Jack Skellington in the creepy Christmas classic and he will perform his vocals at the concert on 7 October (13), making his first live public performance for 18 years.

Burton says, "I've always heard Danny's scores performed live during recording sessions for films we've collaborated on. For others to finally be able to hear it at such a historic venue is really special."

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."
