Dangerous Liaisons

A story of sexual power, depravity, cruelty and deceit.

In 18th century France, letters fly between the mansions of two bored aristocrats as they spin a web of heartbreak and ruin. It might seem like a game, but lives will be ruined and love irrevocably lost.

From the original scandalous novel, the acclaimed film starring John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer and iconic retelling Cruel Intentions, this dangerous story has been thrilling audiences for over 200 years.

Now Northern Ballet bring their bodice-ripping adaptation back to the Playhouse stage, 16 years after its UK premiѐre.

Performed concert style and set-less but with full costume, the ballet is set to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

You’ll feel every heartbeat of this intimate performance.
