The opera composed by Luca Francesconi — a re-reading of Heiner Müller’s play based on Les liaisons dangereuses — reflects on the decadence of certain classes of society. Alex Ollé (of La Fura dels Baus) offers a production set in a box suspended above the stage to represent the emotional isolation of the characters.
