The newest episode of Live From Lincoln Center airs the night before Halloween, and it's an appropriately spooky - and geeky - concert. Airing on PBS on October 30, 2015, the music of Danny Elfman from frequent collaborator Tim Burton's films will be broadcast live from the eponymous center of arts and culture in New York.

The show, bluntly titled "Danny Elfman's Music from the Films of Tim Burton" has sold out runs in LA, London, and New York. John Mauceri conducts a full orchestra and choir as part of a multimedia presentation featuring "Burton's original sketches, drawings, story boards, and film clips," the official description says. Elfman makes a special appearance in the concert as well, singing in the role of Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
