Adam Cooper takes on his greatest challenge yet with this dance-drama based on the classic French novel. Read More >

Liaisons Dangereuses, Les
Adapted and directed with, and designed by award-winning Lez Brotherston, this full length production is the first project for the newly formed Adam Cooper Productions and premiered in Tokyo earlier this year to huge acclaim. 
Set in 18th-century Paris, this tragic tale of seduction and deceit follows the cruel social games played by Marquise de Merteuil and her ex-lover Vicomte Valmont as their aristocratic world slowly falls apart. Lez Brotherston’s rich, sumptuous costumes and magnificent mirrored set are combined with Philip Feeney’s romantic score to capture the grandeur of a dying era. 
Adam Cooper gained worldwide recognition for his legendary performance in Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, has choreographed and starred in On Your Toes (2003) and last summer’s hit musical at Sadler’s Wells, Singin’ In The Rain, and was nominated for an Olivier Award this year for his choreography of Grand Hotel at the Donmar Warehouse.
