Dangerous Liaisons - Regional Tour

14 June — 6 July, Regional Queensland Tour

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 in a world premiere production. Set amongst the aristocratic elite of late 18th century France, this evocative and vivid work will scintillate audiences.

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, reimagined into a dramatic new ballet for mature audiences.

Dangerous Liaisons contains adult themes and is not recommended for children.

Regional performances will be performed to recorded music.


A co-production between Queensland Ballet and Texas Ballet Theater.
