Arthur Schnitzler's 1897 play of Venetian sexual morals La Ronde features interconnected pairs of lovers, spanning the classes of society from the soldier and the whore to the Count. Schnitzler gives nothing less than a post-coital panorama of his age, anatomising its hypocrisies, and showing the power which desire has to jump the tracks of class and morality, forging intimate connections between apparently atomised and distinct individuals.

Using the same concept as the Venetian play La Ronde, we explore modern love, romance and sex through the experiences of five connected couples today, paired by love, lust, passion, desire, and companionship, and who in the end come full circle. Freud wrote to Schnitzler and told him he had learned through intuition everything that he had scientifically unearthed. It illuminated facets in the human condition which are not always obvious. Over five parts we present how intimacy and morality are evolving today. Human emotion has not changed through time, there's always been sexual desire so does what Schnitzler found still hold true? What is modern love and have we really changed since the first La Ronde?

Producer: Kate Bissell

Five interconnected couples tell all.
