Based on Arthur Schnitzler’s play Liebelei, meaning flirtation, Dalliance was first performed at the Lyttelton Theatre, London, in 1986. A bitter sweet drama about a young working class girl, a seamstress for the Opera, who falls in love with a military officer who happens to be on the rebound. Directed by head of acting at The Lir Academy, Hilary Wood, Dalliance is Tom Stoppard’s interpretation of love and loss.
