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 a set design for 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.
