The collaboration with Luc Bondy first continues with Reigen (1993), an adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s play of the same name. The story is one big love chain: the prostitute loves the soldier who is yearning for the chambermaid, but she loves the young man who is yearning for the young woman who loves her husband, while the husband is captivated by the little harlot who is in love with the poet, even though he is the lover of the actress who is having an affair with the Count who wakes up next to the prostitute one morning. The permanently erotic atmosphere of this opera was, according to Boesmans, responsible for a baby boom among the staff at La Monnaie. More verifiably, the piece has been one of his greatest successes. It is still being performed to this day, for example, in the reduction for chamber orchestra by Fabrizio Cassol.
