Viktor & Rolf CostumeViktor & Rolf Costumes

Viktor & Rolf have designed delicious fantasy-inspired costumes for Robert Wilson’s romantic German opera, Der Freischütz. You can expect the design duo’s colorful creatures to have their signature dramatic edge and show-stopping aesthetic which includes almost one million Crystallized Swarovski Elements. Soloists will perform in voluminous 3-D ensembles made of organza, silk, satin, and felt scattered with words and plenty of glittering crystals to catch the beaming stage lights. Two sketches are shown above with a mock-up of the real superhero-like costumes; they will make their first live appearance when Der Freischütz premieres May 30th at Germany’s largest opera house, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
