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.

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra presents an evening of great classical music -- American-style.
The rags of Scott Joplin and James Reese Europe, and Michael Daugherty's tongue-in-cheek look at American pop culture will set your toes tapping.
Golijov takes his inspiration from Yiddish lullabies, and jazz elements permeate the Stravinsky and the Ravel -- the piano concerto also beloved for its achingly beautiful slow movement.
And watch for the side-splitting holiday surprise!
