SMDCAC Presents Manual Cinema’s A Christmas Carol
Sunday, 12/20/2020-, 04:00 pm-
In this LIVE, virtual event presented by SMDCAC, interdisciplinary performance collective Manual Cinema takes on the Charles Dickens holiday classic with a visually inventive adaptation made to broadcast directly to your home. An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been recruited to channel her late husband Joe’s famous Christmas cheer. From the isolation of her Chicago apartment, she reconstructs his annual Christmas Carol puppet show – over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lockdown. But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’s classic ghost story.
Tickets are available November 30: https://smdcac.org/events/manual-cinemas-christmas-carol

Jared Peroune is a Doctor of Musical Arts student in collaborative piano at the University of Miami. Quickly becoming an established collaborative musician, Jared has collaborated with a number of vocalists and instrumentalists throughout South Florida. He has been heard in concerts and recitals throughout Florida, Italy, Ireland and the United Kingdom, and in his hometown of Georgetown, Guyana. Broadening his abilities to other keyboard instruments, Jared recently was featured as harpsichord soloist in a benefit concert at Corpus Christie Church to raise money for a new instrument. In years past, he has been accompanist and continuo organist for Miami Collegium Musicum, a group for which he was also Assistant Conductor, often in collaboration with the Miami Bach Society and the German Consulate. Caren Levine has established a reputation as one of today’s most compelling artists. The San Francisco Chronicle described her as “a petite powerhouse, with technique to burn and unimpeachable musicianship. She is one of the finest musicians around, of the highest and most inspiring order.” An alumna of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, she has been on the roster of the Metropolitan Opera House as Assistant Conductor/Prompter since 2003. In 2012, she received a Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording for The Met Opera’s DVD of John Adams Doctor Atomic Live in HD, and received her second Grammy Award for The Met Opera’s DVD of Thomas Adès The Tempest Live in HD in 2014. An active performer, Levine has collaborated with some of the world’s most prominent artists, including Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Marcello Giordani, Juan Diego Flóres, Lawrence Brownlee, Susanne Mentzer, Morris Robinson, and Barbara Bonney. Particularly interested in the development of emerging artists, she was a founding member of the Miami Music Festival, where she served as Head of Music Staff and Conductor, and serves as head vocal coach at Florida Grand Opera’s Young Artist Program as well as Music Director at Vero Beach Opera.
