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
- "Under Harry Bicket's flamboyant direction, [the program] sparkled with the random unpredictability of an opulent chandelier, the lush ornamentation had a melting fluidity, and the theatricality was entrancing." --The Scotsman
Find inspiration in a serenade by the 20-year-old Mozart and in works by two composers he admired. Eminent British musician Harry Bicket, appearing in his Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra debut, reveals the musical and rhythmic inventiveness and startling modernity of French composer Rameau.
In his final opera, the French composer chose to extol personal liberty, a daring notion for the 1760's and one that Mozart would echo in his operas. LACO superstar David Shostac, "world class ... a musician's musician," (Henryk Szering) delights with his golden flute in the Bach.
