Ooh-la-la. Is it just us or do the pics of North Carolina Dance Theatre's Dangerous Liaisons look pretty darn hot? A sexy lady in lingerie and two sharp men with swords — we certainly can't be the only ones whose eyes are popping. Choreographed by Aussie-bred Sasha Janes, the ballet — based on the 1782 French novel Les Liaisons dangereuses that was turned into the modern adaptation Cruel Intentions — is scored by cellist/vocalist Ben Sollee, who you'll see suspended from the air during the performance. Given the show's enticing plot (a love affair fueled by greed, lust and manipulation), we're feeling happily-ever-afters aren't in order.
