The temperature’s rising south of the river—and we don’t just mean the weather. Queensland Ballet and the Texas Ballet Theatre have teamed up on a world-first production; one that not only comes with a raunchy reputation, it comes with an ‘adult only’ warning.
The ballet production of Dangerous Liaisons has just opened in QPAC’s Playhouse theatre and it’s unlike any ballet you’d have seen or heard of before. Seduction, betrayal, and passion are at the essence of this show—and whether you’re into the ballet or not you’re not going to want to miss this.
Based on the 200-year-old novel by Pierre Choderlos, made ‘Hollywood’ famous by the 1980s movie of the same name and a certain cult movie, Cruel Intentions (the film took its inspiration from the original novel), Dangerous Liaisons is one of the most iconic stories. This time around it’s set in 18th century aristocratic France, featuring an opulent set, luxurious costumes and paired with an original score.
A bit Cruel Intentions meets Marie Antoinette, Dangerous Liaisons is one of the most beautiful production and showcases the incredible talents from the Queensland and Texas Ballet companies. Long story short, it’ll blow you away.
