Recorded Audio Description by VocalEyes and Northern Ballet.
Northern Ballet returns to live performance with an exciting programme of world-class dance.
In Dangerous Liaisons, Northern Ballet bring their bodice-ripping adaptation to the stage. In a story of sexual power, cruelty and deceit, letters fly between the mansions of two bored aristocrats as they spin a web of heartbreak and ruin.
From the original scandalous novel, the acclaimed film starring John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer and iconic retelling Cruel Intentions, this dangerous story has been thrilling audiences for over 200 years.
Performed with minimal set and full costumes, this intimate performance is set to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
This performance adheres to Social Distancing guidelines and seats are allocated in singles and pairs, with entry to the auditorium in two timed slots.

Their right arms are both raised, pointing to the top left corner, and their gaze follows. Behind, a chaise longue with a backdrop of swirling red clouds.
