From the cobbled streets of Paris to the mountains of the Pyrenees, Aspects of Love is a sweeping, epic and heart-breaking love story spanning seventeen years. Passion, desire, family ties and friendship bind six people and three generations together as they come to appreciate how love changes everything.
Alex falls in love with the alluring actress, Rose Vibert. Following a little persuasion, Rose joins Alex at his Uncle’s villa. As the pair embark on a steamy, passionate affair, the unexpected arrival of Uncle George changes all their lives – and those around them – forever.
The musical features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart and is based on the novel by David Garnet. It includes songs such as Love Changes Everything, Seeing Is Believing and First Man You Remember.
This new revival of the musical features musical direction by Richard Bates, choreography by Sam Spencer-Lane, design by Jason Denvir, lighting design by Aaron J Dootson, sound design by James Nicholson and casting by Jane Deitch. It is produced by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Hope Mill Theatre with Jim Kierstead.
