Museums | Disrupted Timeline of 150 Years of Fashion History (in-person)


The Costume Institute's exhibition About Time: Fashion and Duration (on view Oct 29 - Feb 7) will trace 150 years of fashion, from 1870 to the present, along a disrupted timeline. Employing philosopher Henri Bergson's concept of la duree--the continuity of time--the exhibition will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present, and future. The concept will also be examined through the writings of Virginia Woolf, who will serve as the exhibition's "ghost narrator."

Opera | Met Opera: Bizet's Carmen (virtual)


Richard Eyre's stunning new production of Bizet's opera was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year's Eve 2009. Elina Garanca leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title--a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don Jose, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen's interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by rising maestro Yannick Nezet-Seguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet's tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax. The streaming will be available for 23 hrs. Please keep in mind the event can be viewed on the day and time specified in the listing, not before.

Screening | Raphael: The Lord of the Arts (2017): The Life and Art of The Great Painter and Architect (virtual)


Raphael: The Lord of the Arts is an ambitious whirlwind tour of the Renaissance artist's masterworks that showcases around 50 paintings by Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (1483-1520), who was known for his serene portraits and the sinuous grandeur of his human forms. Raphael is best described as a docudrama, and includes a number of dramatic, well-acted, and beautifully filmed reenactments with Flavio Parenti in the role of Raphael. The film stands as the first major documentary on the artist's work, and was pared down from around 200 hours of footage to clock in at 90 minutes. Directed by Luca Viotto. Film will be streamed through Dec 6th.
