Passion, love, life and loss across three generations of a family and their artistic companions.

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart
Based on the novella by David Garnett
Original production by The Really Useful Theatre Company Ltd.

Aspects of Love is a Tony-nominated musical in two acts, which follows the changing relationships between three generations of a family and their artistic companions, set against a background of post-war France and Italy.

Notable numbers from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s moving score include the ballad “Anything But Lonely” and “Love Changes Everything,” which was a huge hit for Michael Ball, who starred in the original production in London and on Broadway.

With five principals of varying ages and an expandable singing and dancing ensemble, Aspects of Love is an ideal show for colleges, amateur groups and professional theatres. However, the chamber opera’s adult subject matter may make it unsuitable for youth performance.
