New LibriVox: Dangerous Connections

dangerous liaisons

 

Elizabeth reads the role of the Presidente de Tourvel in LibriVox’s new dramatic recording of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ Dangerous Connections, now available for download. This classic tale of deception and seduction among aristocrats in pre-Revolutionary France was filmed as Dangerous Liaisons in 1987 (the image above is Michelle Pfeiffer as Tourvel and John Malkovich as the scheming Vicomte de Valmont). It works beautifully as a dramatic reading, since it is an epistolary novel, composed entirely of letters. LibriVox volunteers lend their voices to the different characters’ letters. Enjoy!
