The Nightmare Before Christmas in Concert with Danny Elfman comes to Europe in 2019

For the first time ever, and as part of the movie’s 25th anniversary celebrations, Danny Elfman will be bringing Disney’s timeless classic, Tim Burton‘s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” to Europe/UK in December 2019, for two very special shows in Glasgow and London (UK), where the audience will be able to experience the film on the big screen, accompanied by a full live orchestra and the key members of the original cast.

Danny Elfman will perform his role of Jack Skellington, joined by Catherine O’Hara as Sally, and Ken Page as the voice of Oogie Boogie, with full orchestral accompaniment by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra & Choir in Glasgow, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra & Crouch End Festival Chorus in London.


Conductor John Mauceri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will be leading the full orchestra and choir as in previous occasions (read news) and violin soloist Sandy Cameron will also join the shows.

In Danny Elfman’s words: “Being able to perform ‘Nightmare’ live in sync 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 the UK for the first time in December.”
