More Information on Dangerous Liaisons
A ballet by David Nixon OBE
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.
Tickets for this performance are limited and information will be shared with bookers about changes we have implemented to make the theatre experience safe according to government advice and Covid-19 guidelines. More information
