'The risk is that matrimony can suffocate love by fixing rigorous restrictions. In becoming husband and wife, do lovers accept a fatal contradiction? Les Noces looks into the duality of marriage, which is a promise of eternal love blended with the duties of this union.' In the early sections, the original weightings of gender casting are reversed.
