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.

<p>In 1984, the Irish folk-rock fusion group Moving Hearts released its critically acclaimed genre-defining album, Storm, and established itself as one of Ireland’s most influential bands. Soon after, the ever-evolving group of musicians went their separate ways to pursue individual projects that included performing on soundtracks for movies such as Gangs of New York and Michael Collins and winning a Grammy for a collaborative New Age album (Davy Spillane); heading a Rock School in Ireland (Matt Kelleghan); performing as principal percussionist with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland and recording with artists such as U2, Van Morrison and Elvis Costello (Noel Eccles);and touring with artists such as Genesis and The Corrs (Anto Drennan). Although they were only together for four years, Moving Hearts had a profound effect on the development of modern Celtic music. Now, after almost two decades, the band has reunited and brings its inimitable musical blend of traditional Irish folk, rock, and jazz to Royce Hall for a rare and eagerly anticipated performance.</p>
