A major revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Aspects of Love in London directed by Trevor Nunn.

The musical Aspects of Love is set in France in 1947. It is here that English student Alex Dillingham, travelling through France before his call up, falls in love with the alluring actress Rose Vibert. After a little persuasion, Rose joins Alex at his uncle's villa. As the pair embark on a passionate affair, the unexpected arrival of Uncle George changes their lives forever. From the cobbled streets of Paris to the mountains of the Pyrenees, Aspects of Love is a heartbreaking love story spanning twenty years. Passion, desire, family ties and friendship bind six people and three generations together as they come to appreciate how love changes everything.

Love, Love changes everything: Hands and faces, Earth and sky,
Love, Love changes everything: How you live and How you die
Love, Love changes everything: Days are longer, Words mean more.
Love, Love changes everything: Pain is deeper Than before.
Yes, Love, Love changes everyone. Live or perish
In its flame. Love will never, Never let you Be the same.

Please Note: There will be no late admission into the theatre. Latecomers will be admitted at the interval only.
