SYMPHONIC Yuletide Frights!

Leave it to writer-director Tim Burton to blend two disparate holidays and somehow have it work beautifully, make it a hit movie, and create an immediate classic that can be enjoyed for two holidays. The Jacksonville Symphony presents a live score to Burton’s 1993 Academy Award-nominated animated film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, a darkly humorous saga of “Halloween Town” resident Jack Skellington’s accidental discovery of “Christmas Town,” and the subsequent chaos and comedy that quickly ensues when he opens the portal between the two.

7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 and Saturday, Nov. 19, Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts’ Jacoby Symphony Hall, Downtown, $27-$77,
