Andrew Lloyd Webber's daring musical, Aspects of Love , has transformed David Garnett's 1955 novella of infidelities among the privileged in the South of France into an intimate spectacle of romance and intrigue.
In The Complete Aspects of Love Kurt Gänzl provides behind-the-scenes coverage of the genesis of the musical. Not only does Gänzl capture the world of the Bloomsbury set, of which Garnett was a member, he divulges the complicated business of producing an Andrew Lloyd Webber's extravaganza.
Maria Bjornson's creation of the stage and scenery depicting the crumbling elegance of the town of Pau in the Pyrenees, the designing of the costumes, the directing of Trevor Nunn, the staging, casting, and the composition of the score are all covered.
Included are the complete libretto by Don Black and Charles Hart; over 150 lavish photographs by Clive Barda, acclaimed for his Phantom of the Opera photography; and a full-color fold-out poster.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's previous musicals include Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats, Evita, and The Phantom of the Opera . The Complete Aspects of Love is a handsome memento of Andrew Lloyd Webber's extraordinary musical, as well as a valuable addition to the annals of theatre history.
