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
- Mr. Accardo was the recipient of the Cavaliere di Gran Croce, Italy's highest honor, from the President of Italy in 1982.
- "Italy's violin virtuoso par excellence." --Stereo Review
Surrender to the sweetness of the youthful Mozart, the sensual tango of Piazzolla, and Schoenberg's lush outpouring of erotic love in the late Romantic masterpiece once described as "the score of Tristan und Isolde smeared while the ink was still wet."
Salvatore Accardo displays his masterful technique and musicality in this rare outing as conductor and soloist.
In 1987, Accardo made a highly praised debut as an opera conductor in a new production of Rossini's L'occasione fa il ladro at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro. He has conducted at opera houses in Rome, Lille, and Naples.
