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.

Born out of the ashes of a revolution and led by two luminaries of Russian dance, Bolshoi and ABT ballerina Nina Ananiashvili, and the Bolshoi’s former artistic director Alexei Fadeyechev, the newly formed State Ballet of Georgia is on its way to posing a serious challenge to Moscow’s artistic dominance. Since her sensational debut with the Bolshoi Ballet in 1981, the Georgian-born Ananiashvili has joined the ranks of the world’s most celebrated artists, dazzling audiences with her “prodigious, space-devouring leaps and vivacity” [New York Times].
The mixed repertory program includes Balanchine’s Chaconne; a new ballet by Yuri Possokhov, resident choreographer of San Francisco Ballet, set to traditional Georgian music; and a new work by the Bolshoi’s Aleksei Ratmansky.
