Actress, dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen's fun, fresh spin on The Nutcracker returns to Royce Hall for the holidays. The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.

Quotes & Highlights
- “this is not dancing that you will see anywhere else …” --The New York Times
- "It is not chemistry but alchemy. Ohad Naharin succeeded in turning the dancers into a cocoon of threads from which he draws knots, he cuts, ties, unties, glues, combines and erases the gap between men and women, and mostly--he hypnotizes." --Israeli poet Roni Somek
Since its inception in 1964 with the personal assistance of Martha Graham, Israel’s Batsheva has evolved into one of the world’s most outstanding dance companies, internationally renowned for pushing the boundaries of cutting-edge dance with intense energy, rich sensuality and a culturally diverse dance language. Its repertoire comprises works by dance’s leading innovators, including choreographer Ohad Naharin, whose work blends beauty, anger, serenity and sarcasm to reflect life in his homeland. His newest piece, Three, comprises three parts: Bellus (Beauty), Humus (Earth) and Secus, which translates as both "this" and "not this."
