York Musical Theatre Company
Monday 31 March to Saturday 5 April 2014
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Don Black, Charles Hart
Book by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black, Charles Hart
Aspects Of Love tells a story of passion, love and loss across three generations of a family and their companions, set against the background of the cobbled streets of Paris to the mountains of the Pyrenees, Italy and Venice. It centres on Alex Dillingham, a young student travelling through France, who falls in love with the alluring actress Rose Vibert.
As the pair embark on a passionate affair, the unexpected arrival of Alex's uncle George, changes their lives forever as they come to appreciate how love changes everything.
The song Love Changes Everything was a huge hit for Michael Ball, who starred in the original London production in 1989.
This brand new production is set to be the theatrical event of the year.
'I defy you to leave the theatre dry eyed.'
'Andrew Lloyd Webber's best.'
