About

Don't miss out on Andrew Lloyd Webber's timeless musical Aspects of Love, which makes its West End comeback at the Lyric Theatre for a limited run of 26 weeks.

Michael Ball takes to the stage, 34 years after starring in the original production of this romantic show. Set against the backdrop of glamorous destinations, from the cobbled streets of Paris and sunny South of France to beautiful Venice, relationships across three generations become entangled and the lines between passion, desire and loyalty soon become blurred.

What is Aspects of Love about?

In post-war France, actress Rose finds herself struggling after her hopes for a big career break vanish when the theatre she performs at is forced to close. Upon meeting Alex, a young American who becomes bewitched by her, the pair escape to his villa in the countryside. But their trip is soon interrupted by Alex’s distinguished uncle George. It’s then that Rose’s destiny is turned on its head, revealing how love truly changes everything.

Discover an incredible cast that brings each character’s romantic dilemmas to life. West End legend Michael Ball, known for his success in productions such as Les Misérables, makes his comeback as the estranged uncle George. He is joined by exceptional co-stars including celebrated opera soprano Danielle De Niese, and talented Laura Pitt-Pulford, best known for her role in the popular British soap, Emmerdale.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's enchanting melodies effortlessly capture the emotions of each character, from the hauntingly beautiful "Love Changes Everything" to the emotionally charged "Seeing Is Believing”.

The sets take you across breathtaking landscapes, from picturesque French vineyards to bustling Italian piazzas. The seamless integration of these backdrops combined with captivating film creates an unforgettable theatrical experience.
