About Helnwein's set and costumes for "Der Rosenkavalier"
"Der Rosenkavalier" by Richard Strauss, Los Angeles Opera, 2005
Dear Gottfried, I Went to see the opera on Thursday night with a few of my friends. We had SUCH a good time ---mostly because the costumes were absolutely INCREDIBLE! I was so proud of you, I cannot tell you how much so! All I can say is that you should be doing movies with Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam. You have no equal!
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss
2005, with Maximilian Schell, Los Angeles Opera
