Is love what you think it is?

Our Baroque dance spectacular, Dangerous Liaisons, tells a classic love story. But in the Baroque era, composers were influenced by a very different theory of why people fell in love than we have now.

Viren Swami is Professor of social psychology at Anglia Ruskin University, and an expert on the science of attraction. He explains how things have changed.
