Casting has been announced for the revival production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Aspects of Love, which opens in Manchester in July.

Featuring the classic number "Love Changes Everything", the musical is based on the novel by David Garnett, and has lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart. It tells the story of passion and love across three generations of a family in 1940s France and Italy.

The musical debuted in the West End in 1989, running until 1992, and has since embarked on a UK tour and was recently produced at the Menier Chocolate Factory. It was nominated for six Tony Awards when it premiered on Broadway in 1990.

Cast in the new revival are Kimberly Blake (Half a Sixpence) who plays Giulietta, Jason Kajdi (Our House), in the role of Hugo, Felix Mosse (The Rocky Horror Show) as Alex, Julia J Nagle (An American in Paris) as Elizabeth, Minal Patel (The Secret Garden) as Marcel, Jerome Pradon (Jesus Christ Superstar) as George and Kelly Price (A Little Night Music) in the role of Rose.

Joining them and professional debuts in the production are Rosie Cava-Beale, ensemble, Jack Churms, as Jerome/ensemble and Eleanor Walsh as Jenny/ensemble.

The revival is directed by Jonathan O'Boyle (Pippin) with musical direction by Gareth Bretherton, set and costume design by Jason Denvir, choreography by Sam Spencer-Lane, lighting design by Aaron J Dootson and sound design by Calum Robinson.
