ASPECTS OF LOVE is returning to London’s West End at the Lyric Theatre for a limited run in 2023!
34 years after having starred in the original West End production, Michael Ball returns to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s celebrated musical ASPECTS OF LOVE at the Lyric Theatre for a strictly limited season, this time playing the role of George. Michael Ball said:
“ASPECTS OF LOVE holds a very special place in my heart. I am absolutely delighted to revisit Andrew Lloyd Webber’s glorious score in a re-imagined chamber production in the West End.”
With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart, ASPECTS OF LOVE is based on the novel by David Garnett and directed by Jonathan Kent. This heartbreaking story of passion, love, life and loss in post-war France and Italy, follows three generations of the Dillingham family spanning 17 years.
Joining Michael Ball will be Olivier nominated Laura Pitt-Pulford (Falsettos), Jamie Bogyo (Moulin Rouge! The Musical) and Danielle de Niese (It’s a Wonderful Life English National Opera).
In ravaged post war France, beautiful actress Rose Vibert (Laura Pitt-Pulford) finds herself homeless and penniless after her hoped-for career break play closes early. Invited to a country villa by a love struck young American, Alex Dillingham (Jamie Bogyo), she impulsively accepts. When unexpectedly interrupted by Alex’s distinguished uncle George (Michael Ball), everything changes.
So begins a tumultuous 20-year love story, entwining the three of them and George’s mistress, the feisty artist Giulietta (Danielle de Niese). Everything changes once again when Rose’s daughter Jenny turns 18.
From the cobbled streets of Paris, through the French countryside to the splendours of Venice, Aspects of Love is a sweeping romantic story of passion, love, betrayal and heartbreak across three generations, where they discover how love – in its many forms – truly does change everything.
Please note Michael Ball will not perform on Monday performances from 29 May onwards.
