Michael Ball (Les Mis, Sweeney Todd, Hairspray), who starred in the original production in London and on Broadway, reunites with director Jonathan Kent in this reimagined production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love. Coming to the West End's Lyric Theatre from May 2023! The musical features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Charles Hart and Don Black, and based on David Garnett's novel, Aspects of Love tells the story of love, passion, life and loss across three generations of a family and their artistic companions, against a backdrop of 1940s Italy and France. Alex falls in love with Rose Vibert, a seductive actress. The couple embarks on a passionate affair, when the unexpected arrival of Uncle George changes their lives - and of those around them - forever. Desire, passion, friendship and family ties bind three generations together as they come to realise how love changes everything. Michael Ball mentioned that this story holds a unique place in his heart, and shared his excitement to be collaborating again with brilliant director Jonathan Kent, mentioning that their work together on Sweeney Todd was extremely inspiring.
