When his Serenada Schizophrana was performed live at Carnegie Hall in 2005, Danny Elfman seemed to shed the shackles and demands of film, providing some of the freshest music of his career. With IRIS, Cirque du Soleil’s new stage show, Elfman is inspired once again to new heights of inventiveness with one of his most joyful musical creations.
