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.

Founded in the 1940s as the Israel Broadcast Authority Radio Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest and most important musical institutions in Israel. Under the tirelessly creative vision of music director Leon Botstein, the orchestra has gained world renown for innovative programming that integrates the bold spirit and multi-ethnic identity of Israel’s diverse population with the historical and cultural context of its ancient capital.
In a fascinating program exploring the American Jewish diaspora, the orchestra and Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie make their Royce Hall debut, performing Erich Walter Sternberg's The Twelve Tribes of Israel, Bernstein’s Serenade, and Copland’s Symphony No. 3.
