‘Disney In Concert Live-To-Film ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Comes To Brooklyn
Pumpkin King Danny Elfman is coming to Barclays Center in Brooklyn on December 6 and 7 to perform his legendary role of Jack Skellington in a very special screening, with the music performed live by a full orchestra and choir, of Disney’s timeless holiday classic, “TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.” Elfman will be joined by other original cast members, including Catherine O’Hara (Sally) and Ken Page (Oogie Boogie), who will all sing live during the movie.
Tickets go on sale starting Friday, October 6 at 10:00am at www.barclayscenter.com or www.ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center beginning Saturday, October 7 at noon (if tickets are still available).
Danny Elfman, who wrote the film’s songs (music and lyrics), composed its original score and was the original singing voice of Jack Skellington says, “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.”
A cast of singers and special guest artists will be performing the film’s acclaimed songs live. The concert will also include featured violin soloist, Sandy Cameron. Conductor John Mauceri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will be leading the full orchestra and choir performing the film’s classic score and songs live to picture.
TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS IN CONCERT LIVE TO FILM will transform Barclays Center into Halloween Town with special pre-show activities including an audience participation costume contest and unique photo opportunities. Tim Burton-inspired costumes are encouraged. The concert is produced by Laura Engel & Richard Kraft, Tim Fox & Alison Ahart Williams, in association with Disney Concerts, the team that recently presented the highly-acclaimed DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL starring Sara Bareilles and Rebel Wilson.
