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.

This program was supposed to tell stories thru tango with an influence of ballet and to some extent that was true. Unfortunately the development of the premise was lacking polish and the dancers were not great but more like adequate with the exception of Ms. Quiroga and a couple of the men. If you were lucky to have seen the great argentinian ballet dancer Julio Boca bring his Boca Tango show a few years ago you would have seen what this project should have been like.
Quotes & Highlights

Following their rapturously received, sold-out run in New York City in 2006, the internationally renowned Argentinean dancer Guillermina Quiroga and her thrilling company return to the U.S. in their first North American tour.
Best known in this country for her stunning work with the smash hits Tango x2, Forever Tango and Tango Argentino, the classically trained Quiroga is one of Argentina’s premier tango dancers, hailed by The New York Times for her “lyrical grace,” “incredibly deft, snappy footwork” and “spectacular feats (a leg held behind her head as she turned, astonishing backbends).”
Intertwined with some of Argentina’s best poetry, music, and sensuous dance, Tango, Historias Breves brings us closer to stories of life, love and passion and delves deeply into the fundamental role destiny plays. Quiroga and her partner Claudio Villagra will be joined by three couples and the group Los Cosos de al Lao, led by conductor and bandoneon player Gustavo Paglia.
