The story tells of many aspects of love: love between younger man and older woman; love between older man and younger woman; love between just women; love between nearly pre-teen and over thirty cousins. The list goes on but the real problem is that the younger woman, the older woman and the just woman in the list is the same woman and the near pre-teen is her daughter by the older man who is the uncle of the over-thirty cousin who just happens to be the younger man mentioned at the start.

Aspects of Love has always been the odd man out in the Andrew Lloyd Webber catalogue: an unconventional musical about deeply unconventional people, but with some of the composer’s finest music, and lyrics to match by Charles Hart and Don Black.
Trevor Nunn directed the first production in the cavernous Prince of Wales back in 1989 and returns to the piece now in the intimate Menier with a production that is as persuasively ravishing as his recent work there on A Little Night Music, a similarly Mozartian construct of love and mis-directed passion.
There is no librettist: David Garnett’s 1955 novella is slightly tinkered with (the action here stretches from 1947 to 1964) but simply translated to the stage in raw, bleeding chunks of bohemian sexuality and bad behaviour. The work of a dramatic structure is done by the music.
