“Nicolas Errèra is a composer and musician whom I have had the great pleasure to have worked with twice over the past few years. He composed and or arranged two scores for plays I directed in Paris. The Good Canary in 2007 and Les Liaisons Dangereuses in 2012. The Good Canary soundtrack is an original score, mostly solo piano, which was greatly remarked upon and appreciated both during the run in Paris, and later in Mexico. The music for Les Liaisons Dangereuses is mostly based on pieces by Bach, Handel and Mozart, and is the perfect accompaniment to this brutal, tragic and sadly amusing play. Nicolas works alone, with great precision and devoid of fuss or pretention. I consider him the perfect collaborator, refined, soulful, and with a comprehensive grasp of musical and dramatic structure. The last few days I have been in sunny Los Angeles, where valet parking is often the norm. Three times in the past four days when I reclaimed my car, the person returning the car to me has asked me what disc was playing on the stereo. All three times it was music by Nicolas. Valet parkers hear a lot of music.”

John Malkovich/ February 25th, 2012/Hollywood, California.


More than 25 years ago, John Malkovich soared to international stardom with his memorable performance in Dangerous Liaisons, which is an adaptation of a novel by Choderlos de Laclos. Malkovich now steps into the role of director with his modern interpretation of the famous story where pair of restless aristocrats form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game.

This updated script by Christopher Hampton translates the original material into the world of today making the seductive power of this perverse conflict irresistibly new.

The premiere took place in the Théâtre de l’Atelier in Paris on January  2012, after the play toured France and United State ( Washington and New York) in 2013.
