T+L Reports: Dynamic Duos

"How do you fancy three Stravinskys?" So began the auspicious collaboration, in 1981, between New York Metropolitan Opera producer John Dexter and British painter David Hockney. Hockney's dazzling sets and costume designs unified the Russian composer's works on the otherwise disparate triple bill—two operas, Le Rossignol and Oedipus Rex, and a ballet, Le Sacre du Printemps. This month, the Kirov's Valery Gergiev conducts the first revival in almost 20 years of the signal program (see www.metopera.org for dates). • In the early 1970's, modern-dance choreographer Trisha Brown began commissioning work from her artist friends—not only sets and costumes, but also sculptures for her dancers to interact with. "Trisha Brown: Dance and Art in Dialogue, 1961-2001," at New York's New Museum of Contemporary Art (October 10-January 25), displays these historic collaborations, which include motion-detecting scaffolds by Robert Rauschenberg; glittering sculptures made of cymbals by Terry Winters; and red and blue woodcut prints by Donald Judd. Don't miss the live performances in the museum's galleries,October 26 through January 24.
