The Green Bird score is composed and orchestrated by Elliot Goldenthal for the 1999 musical of the same name, directed by long-time Goldenthal collaborator Julie Taymor; it is an allegorical fairy tale of a royal family's rite of passage after being separated by a wicked grandmother.

The score itself is typical of Goldenthal's style; atonal, sometimes disonant and a balance between theatre, drama and invention. It was, along with the musical itself, well received by critics.[1][2]
