The costumes are sensual and exciting. The duets are packed with intrigue and emotion.
I've distilled everything into one single principle: win or die.
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
In a world where reputation is everything, the battle of the sexes is played out through the twisted games of two bored French aristocrats. But this time the rules are broken when two of the players fall in love…
Northern Ballet Theatre's Dangerous Liaisons is a sensual tale of the games people play in the name of love. Seduction, conquest and revenge are played out to Vivaldi's sizzling Four Seasons as two ex-lovers go head to head in a deadly dance.
From the original scandalous novel to the acclaimed film starring Glenn Close and John Malkovich, Dangerous Liaisons is a story that has captured the imagination for generations. With their unique blend of ballet and drama NBT are the perfect company to bring you a thrilling dance adaptation.
Think intrigue, think seduction, think of turbulent emotions straining at the tight lacing of 18th century bodices and lustful thoughts seething under the calmly elegant wigs of aristocratic men.
