Fans of composer Danny Elfman will have a third opportunity to catch an orchestral concert of his music for the movies of Tim Burton. Organizers of the concert have added a third performance to the musical event scheduled for Oct. 30 at the Nokia Theatre at downtown's L.A. Live.

"Danny Elfman’s Music From the Films of Tim Burton" was initially scheduled for just one performance on Halloween  night at the Nokia. After the concert sold out in a matter of minutes, organizers added a second performance for Oct. 29.

The third performance,  scheduled for 8:15 p.m. on Oct. 30, will be the final opportunity to catch the concert, a spokesman for the organizers said.


The concert will feature conductor John Mauceri conducting an orchestra and chorus performing Elfman's music from such  Burton films as "Beetlejuice," "Edward Scissorhands," "Batman" and "Alice in Wonderland."

Elfman himself will appear in parts of the concert to perform songs from "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

The concert is scheduled to debut in London on Oct. 7 at the Royal Albert Hall, followed by a short British tour before coming to L.A. Organizers are planning a U.S. tour, but no details have been announced.
