A classic tale of seduction and betrayal.
Based on Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ time honoured novel, Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Associate and world-renowned choreographer Liam Scarlett breathes life into this sultry tale.

With a story that has captivated audiences around the world for over 200 years, Dangerous Liaisons is a hedonistic tale of love, virtue and humanity, re-imagined into a dramatic new ballet for mature audiences.
