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.

These world-class musicians reunited in 2006 for a tour commemorating the 15th anniversary of their groundbreaking album Planet Drum. Released in 1991 by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart, the landmark recording combined the talents and native traditions of some of the world’s percussion giants to create a joyous celebration of rhythm. The album went on to win the first ever Grammy in the World Music category, spent 26 weeks at #1 on the Billboard world music chart and set the standard for world music as a genre. Now, following their acclaimed 2007 album The Global Drum Project, this musical collaboration resumes with Hart, Indian tabla maestro Zakir Hussain, Nigerian talking drum virtuoso Sikiru Adepoju and legendary Latin percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo in a passionate evening of tranced-out grooves, elegant electronic programming and hypnotic tuned percussion.
