av1av21

Viktor & Rolf have designed costumes for romantic comedy opera Der Freisch├╝tz, which opens at the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden on may 30th. They described the designing process as comic-strip-like, and have used Swarovski crystals in abundance to make the costumes shimmer under the stage lighting.
