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.

Again, the LACO and Jeffery Kahane has put on a superb performance.
However, our tickets left much to be desired. We sat in the balcony and had to view the stage through a metal railing. I expected seats in the rear of the orchestra. I checked the seating chart and "B" seats were in the rear. We had been given seats in this section for prior concerts and I fully expected the same treatment this time. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
I suggest that Goldstar be more specific as to the location of the seats that are made available to Goldstar purchasers at Royce Hall.

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 13 in C major, K. 415
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 19 in F major, K. 459
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 26 in D major, K. 537, “Coronation”
Celebrate the beauty and pathos of Mozart genius. Concerto No. 13, which was premiered in 1783 at his own subscription series in Vienna, features festive trumpets and kettledrums, heralding Mozart’s roguish wit. He performed No. 19 and No. 26 during the 1790 coronation festivities for Emperor Leopold II in Frankfurt. With its bold orchestration for the wind instruments, the former beautifully displays the talent of LACO’s wind virtuosos; the latter, although nicknamed “Coronation,” was written in 1788 – the year the impoverished Amadé and Constanze moved to the outskirts of Vienna.
