The opera star Renée Fleming and the violinist Joshua Bell - two musicians whose fame transcends classical music - will share the stage in "Time, Creativity and the Cosmos," a multimedia spectacle to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the World Science Festival in New York. The performance, on May 30 at Jazz at Lincoln Center, is among the more than 50 events in the festival, which runs from May 30 through June 4 and for the first time will stage events in Times Square.

"Time, Creativity and the Cosmos," narrated by Brian Greene, a physicist, the author of "The Elegant Universe" and a founder of the festival, is billed as a "celebration of science and art examining our collective longing to transcend the boundaries of space and time." The evening will feature performances by Ms. Fleming, Mr. Bell and the dance troupe Pilobolus. It will be directed by John Christian Plummer, who at last year's festival directed "Awakening the Mind: A Celebration of the Life and Work of Oliver Sacks." Ms. Fleming is performing in Strauss's "Der Rosenkavalier" at the Metropolitan Opera through May 13.
