The excessive artwork and irresistibility of opera meet the immediacy and accessibility of musical theatre in a stability completely struck for this broadly tailored story of sexual conquest and intrigue. Melpomene is happy to supply the entire libretto to Caluori and Steppe’s harmful Liaisons during this exact better half variation to the whole unique inspiration recording (Melpomene Records).

Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ 1782 novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses (like the later novels The Phantom of the Opera, and Les Miserables) is a piece poised among worlds. at the one hand, the stature of vintage literature. at the different, a wildly renowned charm, desirable a clamoring mass viewers. Its fast reputation, scandal and overwhelming luck has on account that resulted in a proliferation of innumerable derivations in all genres. but, regardless of the novel’s seductive antihero and his depraved, domineering counterpart, its severe feelings, great comedy and excessive melodramatic tragedy, no opera or musical in keeping with the lurid vintage has been itself referred to as a vintage. until eventually now.

A serendipitous fit to this two-worlds dichotomy, Johnathan Daniel Steppe (lyrics) and Malcolm Caluori (music) convey backgrounds distinctively attuned to the classical-popular synthesis. The ensuing mix brings a vibrancy to the characters and a different theatrical thrill to their conditions, setting up harmful Liaisons because the definitive musical dramatization of the tale. Steppe’s libretto to the arguable story is an interesting exam past the archetype, featuring complicated, outstanding characters that deliberately defy us to go any informal judgment upon them. His considerate drama captures the deadpan humor, refined innuendo and biting discussion that make risky Liaisons as wonderful because it is provocative.
