NEAR AS FOLK: Given their theatrical bent, Viktor & Rolf are naturals for theater costumes. To wit: Director Robert Wilson is collaborating with the Dutch duo for his production of “Der Freischütz,” or “The Freeshooter,” the romantic opera by Carl Maria von Weber. It plays May 30 and June 1 at the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden. The opera, famous for its portrayal of supernatural themes and tunes inspired by German folk music, was first performed in 1821. And while some of the costumes are vaguely historical, Viktor Horsting, who designs with Rolf Snoeren, described them as “almost comic-striplike.”
