What’s this? What’s this? Well, if you’re a fan of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, have we got some terrific news for you! Book your plane to NYC because the classic holiday film is going to be a live-to-film concert with some amazing guest stars, at the Barclay center, in Brooklyn, on December 6 and 7!
Danny Elfman, who was the original voice of Jack Skellington, (he also wrote the music, lyrics and score of the film), will perform live, along with other original voice actors Catherine O’Hara (Sally) and Ken Page (Oogie Boogie). Conducted by John Mauveri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, they will be backed by a full orchestra and choir during a screening of the movie.
“Being able to perform “Nightmare” live in synch to the movie with a full orchestra was such a thrill at the sold out Hollywood Bowl shows. Having Catherine O’Hara and Ken Page to perform with me really made it a unique and magical experience. I’m happy to bring this special night to Brooklyn for the first time in December,” says Elfman.
Barclays Center will also transform itself into Halloween Town, “with special pre-show activities including an audience participation costume contest and unique photo opportunities. Tim Burton-inspired costumes are encouraged!”
