Queensland Ballet has teamed up with Artistic Associate and world-renowned choreographer, Liam Scarlett, to present Dangerous Liaisons, an evocative performance and classic tale of seduction and betrayal, coming to HOTA on June 14 to 15.
The scandalous story, which has captivated audiences around the world for over 200 years, is based on Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ time honoured novel and has been reimagined into a dramatic new ballet for mature audiences.
Set amongst the aristocratic elite of late eighteenth century France, Dangerous Liaisons is a hedonistic tale of love, betrayal and humanity.
CEO of HOTA, Criena Gehrke, said this performance is one of the most daring works by Queensland Ballet to-date.
“This is adults-only ballet at its finest. Sexy, stunning and dramatic – just the way I like it,” she said.
Queensland Ballet’s ambitious adaptation of this incredibly complex and nuanced story will come to life next month, in their sole Gold Coast performance taking place at HOTA’s Arts Theatre.
After premiering the production at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane earlier this year, Queensland Ballet will also head to Cairns, Toowoomba and Mackay as part of their tour.
Dangerous Liaisons is recommended for eighteen plus patrons and will take place at the Home of the Arts on Friday 14th June, at 7.30pm and Saturday 15th June, at 1.30pm.
