“Danny Elfman‘s Music From the Films of Tim Burton” has added a second performance in Los Angeles.
Elfman and the 87-piece Hollywood Studio Symphony and 45-member choir conducted by John Mauceri will perform Nov. 1 at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live, in addition to Oct. 31. They will also perform Nov. 2 at the Honda Center in Anaheim.
The program, which has already toured internationally, features newly created suites from the 16 film collaborations between composer Elfman and director Burton. Film clips and the artwork of Tim Burton will accompany the performance.
It is only Elfman’s second live U.S. performance since 1995. Mauceri, who conducted the recording of Elfman’s classical work, “Serenada Schizophrana,” was director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra for 15 years.
Elfman and Burton are currently working on Big Eyes starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz about painter Margaret Keane.
