They have teamed up for the second time with Robert Wilson (the duo created costumes for a dance production that he staged in 2004), who is producing 'Der Freischütz' by Carla Maria von Webber at the Baden-Baden Opera House in Germany. The costumes are set to be spectacular - we hear that they have used over a million Swarovski Crystals to create them. The star pieces? A coat featuring a giant 3D lightning bolt, an amazing dress made up of brightly coloured silk flowers and the choir's costumes, which will be traditional Dirndl and Lederhosen made of black neoprene.
The Opera will premiere on 30th May. Click here for more details.
