Based on the novel by David Garnett, Aspects of Love is a story of passion, love, life and loss in post-war France and Italy, following three generations of the Dillingham family spanning 17 years.

Alex falls in love with actress Rose and as the pair embark on their journey, the unexpected arrival of Uncle George changes all their lives and those around them forever.

Susana Tierney was one of the first group organisers to see Aspects of Love and said that “the fantastic performance didn’t disappoint.”

She continued: “Michael Ball and Danielle de Niese were particularly outstanding, plus the set was really well thought out with a great use of projections that really kept the show moving even though the scenes changed.

“Overall I would highly recommend going, especially if you saw it all those years ago with Michael Ball playing Alex. It was lovely seeing it come full circle with him now playing the part of George. It was a very enjoyable and entertaining evening.”

Nicola Jane Haynes, group organiser for Theatre Trips Essex, said: “All the leads were outstanding in my opinion and having recently seen Jamie Bogyo in Moulin Rouge, I thought how wonderful he was to swap into a new role in such a short period of time – he played Alex perfectly.

Michael Ball stars as Uncle George Sillingham in the 2023 revival of Aspects of Love.

“Michael Ball has such charisma and style. He is a one-off superstar and his song Love Changes Everything was performed to perfection. The story was easy to follow and the stage was perfectly set.”

Neil Edeson of Surrey Trips also enjoyed the staging throughout the performance. He said: “I thought the projections used during the scene changes were excellent - simple but very effective.

“It is obviously a very strong cast and it was good to see such a large orchestra at certain moments at the back of the stage. I have a group of 38 going in July and I’m sure they will enjoy it.”

“We have two groups going to this show and Michael Ball’s starring role made it easy to sell to our members.”

Clive Roylance, who organises trips for Lordship Theatregoers, said: “Of course, the most outstanding part of the show is that song which everyone remembers Michael Ball for. Fortunately, that haunting melody from the wonderful Love Changes Everything returns at intervals throughout the show.

“We have two groups going to this show and Michael Ball’s starring role made it easy to sell to our members.”
