Quartett is a very personal review of Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Choderlos de Laclos. Heiner Müller explains in Quartett’s prologue, that rather than being based on the novel, the idea came after reading the prologue by Heinrich Mann published in the German translation. Luca’s Francesconi piece is built basically on monologues of poetical and brutal prose, with a lot of subtext. Among the words, irony, sarcasm, seduction, and a good dose of black humor appears.

Keeping the names of the main characters of the novel Les Liaisons dangereuses, Heiner Müller wrote a version of this work to talk about control, manipulation, power and the distance from the decadent aristocracy from the world surrounding it.
