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
- "Blush is about boys and girls, loving, street fighting, falling out ... raw sex, gritty humor and magical imagery." --Financial Times
Described by the French newspaper Le Soir as "a cross between Trisha Brown and John Woo," Belgian choreographer Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez create confrontational and intensely physical works that push dancers and technology beyond their limits. An explosive synthesis of live action, film and music, his latest work Blush explores love in all its dangerous and exhilarating splendor. Featuring a wild rock soundtrack by David Eugene Edwards of the bands Woven Hand and 16 Horsepower, Blush is set against a flickering backdrop of film sequences projected in large scale; dancers dive from the stage into the screen and seamlessly reappear on film, transformed into water nymphs in an underwater netherworld - a production seething with emotion, energy and raw sensuality.
