Romanesque Mask

from the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Laclos

Paris, 1830. After the fall of Napoleon, Imperial Rule is restored by Charles X, younger brother of Louis XVI who was guillotined during the French Revolution. The aristocrats are somewhat fearful of the changing status quo, but nonetheless continue to live in luxury. In this social circle of truth and deception, much attention is gathered on one particular young noble, the Viscount Valmont. The Viscount family was ruined, but using his talent and charisma, he plans to make his house powerful once more.

Although he keeps company with many women, he has never been able to forget his past lover the Marchioness Merteuil. She became a widow at a young age, and was the object of many nobles' affection, but was regarded as an unobtainable beauty.

At a soiree held by Marchioness Merteuil, Valmont meets Mrs. Tourvel, a temple master's wife who is known for her high moral virtues. Valmont, who in all his lovers has never known such a woman, is deeply intrigued by her. He is aware that the temple master is away on a long business mission, and plans to seduce her during her husband's absence.

Merteuil suspects his intentions and observes amused, but at the same promises to become his lover should his plan succeed. On the other hand, she knows that Count Gercourt, by whom she was once betrayed, is engaged to marry her cousin Cecile de Volanges. In order to exact her revenge on Count Gercourt, she asks Valmont to tempt Cecile.

Meanwhile, the innocent and honest Baron Danceny meets Cecile at a soiree and is strongly attracted to the charming girl. He makes frequent visits to the Volanges residence to teach her music, and falls more deeply in love with her. But he hesitates to confess his love because she has a fiance.

In the meantime, Valmont visits Mrs. Tourvel at her Rosemonde residence in the Loire and soon begins to make heated advances. Mrs. Tourvel is afraid to betray her husband and refuses him consistently, but at the same time is struggling to resist his charms. Valmont senses her torment, and sends a letter to Merteuil informing her that he will return to Paris to let the situation cool down.

Merteuil is vexed at Valmont's uncharacteristic lact of action, and thinks up a plan. She discloses to Cecile's mother, Mrs. Volanges, that Danceny has attempted to seduce Cecile, and suggests she let Cecile go to the Rosemonde residence where Valmont is staying. Valmont is to lay the cloth for an easy seduction by acting as mediator between Danceny and Cecile, and approaches the naïve Cecile who falls easily into his hands. Danceny, who knows nothing of the situation, gladly accepts an invitation from Valmont to visit the Rosemonde residence. Cecile is still in love with him, and is infinitely ashamed of her actions.

Valmont at last seduces Mrs. Tourvel, and asks Merteuil to fulfill her promise. Merteuil however refuses, indicating that she believes he is still attached to Mrs. Tourvel. Merteuil has seriously fallen in love with him now is jealous of Tourvel.

Several days later at masquerade, Valmont pulls Mrs. Tourvel from her husband's side and dances with her, but soon tears himself from her and dances with Merteuil, drawing her intimately to him. Mrs. Tourvel, shocked by his conduct, hides away in a nunnery and is thought to have disappeared.

Danceny is told by Merteuil that Valmont seduced Cecile, and challenges him to a duel. On the day of the duel, Valmont fires shots into the air and hearing them, Danceny is alarmed by the racket and leaves. Soon after, revolutionary movement activities begin to increase and society once again is enveloped by an atmosphere of dark unrest verging on war. Valmont decides to join the King's army, and Merteuil leaves Paris in order to escape the war fire.

The two lovers Valmont and Marteuil are unwilling to part with the days of pleasure they enjoyed at the center of society. Ignoring the approach of war, they continue to dance the last waltz.
