Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, the maverick duo behind the Dutch fashion label, Viktor & Rolf, have been invited to design costumes for the Robert Wilson directed opera, “Der Freischutz.” Combining Robert Wilson and Viktor & Rolf’s distinctive visions, the result is an innovative and colorful affair that centers on voluminous shapes with comical undertones. Put in place to create interesting, multi-faceted light effects, nearly a million Crystallized Swarovski Elements have been used. The opera will premiere May 30 at the German opera house, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
