Empire Theatre audiences will be seduced by one of Queensland Ballet’s newest performances Dangerous Liaisons when it appears on stage later this month as a part of the regional tour. A co-production between Queensland Ballet and Texas Ballet Theatre, this classic tale of seduction and betrayal will appear on the Empire Theatre stage for one night only on Friday 28 June following sold out shows during its Brisbane season.

Based on the 18th century novel by French author Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, Dangerous Liaisons is a sultry tale set amongst the aristocratic elite that has been captivating audiences from around the world for more than 200 years. Choreographed by Queensland Ballet Artistic Associate Liam Scarlett, Dangerous Liaisons is a hedonistic story of love, virtue and humanity reimagined in a dramatic new ballet, designed for mature audiences.

The story was inspiration for the film version of Dangerous Liaisons starring Glenn Close and John Malkovich and film adaptation Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe.

Local musician Bonnie Blue will also perform in the foyer for an hour before and after the performance.
