Provocative, stylish, and erotic, La Ronde follows a chain of amorous couplings across turn-of-the-century Vienna. Exchanging one lover for another, two actors take on ten diverse characters in sexy duets that explore the passions, deceptions, and disconnections of modern love. Unflinchingly ahead of its time, La Ronde, in its 1921 premiere, caused one of the greatest scandals in theater history!
La Ronde contains nudity and is intended for mature audiences.
