The protagonists – the marquise de Merteuil and the viscount de Valmont, former lovers – choose to become rivals, in a competition based on seduction and revenge games. Merteuil dares Valmont to corrupt the young and innocent Cecile de Volanges before her marriage, but Valmont is chasing another target, the heart of the virtuous Madame de Tourvel. Both protagonists will fall in their own traps when they realize that, in front of the true love, their souls are more vulnerable than they thought to be.
”The idea that the human mind can know and master the world (not at all unknown to the times we are living) also dictates the behaviour of the protagonists of our play, a viscount and a marquise. Their revolution does not try to crash a traditional state order, but is proposing itself to break apart an empire never defeated – the one of the feelings.” (Cristi Juncu)
