The Golden Globe nominated score by GRAMMY-award winning composer Danny Elfman is lit by the Cincinnati Pops and provides the perfect soundtrack to Tim Burton’s animated, animated musical dark fantasy fantasy The Nightmare Before Christmas. First released in 1993, the film was directed by Henry Selick (“James and the Giant Peach”) and is based on a story and characters by Tim Burton. The film follows the serious but misguided adventures of Jack Skellington, the beloved Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, trying to take over the Christmas vacation. Against the advice of Sally, a lonely beautiful rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack hires three mischievous trick-or-treaters – Lock, Shock, and Barrel – to help him kidnap Santa Claus. The film is rated “PG”.
