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.

From her early days as Rudolf Nureyev’s protégé and star of the Paris Opera Ballet to her current reign as principal guest artist at London’s Royal Ballet, Sylvie Guillem has electrified the dance world with her superhuman virtuosity and dazzling elasticity. Perhaps the world’s most celebrated ballerina, she has scored memorable triumphs with many of today’s most gifted choreographers. In an exciting exploration of the boundaries between two great classical dance forms, Indian classical kathak dance and ballet, Guillem teams up with renowned British Asian choreographer and dancer Akram Khan performing both solos and duos, accompanied by live music. Rooted in creation stories and myths, Sacred Monsters examines the notion of male and female energies as forces in opposition and in harmony with one another.
