The Soraya brings a rare holiday treat – a series of live performances from the magical world of Manual Cinema, which will stream at 5 and 7 p.m. Dec. 11, 1 and 5 p.m. Dec. 12 and 1 and 4 p.m. Dec. 13. This holiday season, the company takes on Charles Dickens’ classic with a visually inventive adaptation made to broadcast directly to your home. The story is told by Aunt Trudy, an avowed holiday skeptic. On Christmas Eve, during quarantine, she has been recruited to entertain her family with a puppet show on a Zoom call. The puppets soon take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of the classic ghost story. Hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes and an original live score will come together to tell an imaginative re-invention of this cherished holiday classic.
