This is a 2010 illustration of Camille Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre. The person who made video wrote:   "According to legend, "Death" appears at midnight every year on Halloween. Death calls forth the dead from their graves to dance their dance of death for him while he plays his fiddle. His skeletons dance for him until the rooster crows at dawn, when they must return to their graves until the next year. This is my treat to you all...You might like it or you may hate it but it is dear to me."
