Robert Wilson‘s edition for Parkett 16 (1988), "A Letter for Queen Victoria“, is a lithograph folded in three parts and bound into the publication (see image 8). The work depicts three sketches for the set and light design of Wilson‘s namesake opera. The images show some pages from the bilingual libretto, which Wilson wrote. The libretto was published as a booklet, when the opera was performed in Paris, opening on December 4, 1975. In "Letter for Queen Victoria" as in his many other plays and performances, Wilson directs a stream-of-consciousness form of theater, without continuity in its succession of dramatic, musical and choreographic effects.
