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
- "A performer of almost Mephistophelean intensity... Greco is in command of one of the most exciting, original and eccentric dance vocabularies of anyone in contemporary dance!" --The Times (U.K.)
- "Greco deals in the electrical storms that zap and scintillate through our brain cells every second of our lives, waking and sleeping. He has both a poet's and scientist's curiosity..." --The Herald
Set against a stark soundtrack of violin strings and distant sirens, the loneliness of aftermath permeates Rimasto Orfano (Abandoned Orphan). Dancers dressed in ghostly white emerge from a backdrop in which a single dangling bulb casts floods of shadow and light. The body, forced into silence, questions any next step: to withdraw or regroup, to lead or remain behind.
