Viktor and Rolf are currently working with the director and artist Robert Wilson for whom they are creating the costumes for an upcoming production of the romantic opera “Der Freischutz” (The Freeshooter) by Carl Maria Von Weber at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden in Germany.
Der Freischütz is based on an old German tradition that seven unerring bullets may be obtained by selling one's soul to the Demon Hunter. Redemption can only be achieved by providing another victim within the appointed term.
I can Not wait for more images of the creations V&R are working on.
Enjoy this for now.
