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.

Bienvenue en France! The 21-year-old French pianist Lise de la Salle has emerged as one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation. She makes her Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra debut in Saint-Saëns’ delightful, show-stopping nod to Parisian cabaret music in the Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor. Her dynamic countryman Louis Langrée, celebrated music director of New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival, is the evening's guest conductor. Langrée illuminates a Ravel gem and brings his refined musical sensibility, formidable technique and radiant personality to the challenge of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2.
