Further casting has been announced for the West End revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love, produced by Nica Burns.

Danielle De Niese, Laura Pitt-Pulford & Anna Unwin will star alongside previously announced Jamie Bogyo and Michael Ball.

Internationally renowned soprano Danielle De Niese, takes the role of Giulietta. Hailed by the New York Times Magazine as ‘Opera’s Coolest Soprano’, Danielle de Niesehas been thrilling audiences worldwide from the Metropolitan Opera to Covent Garden and La Scala. But before all this, she won an Emmy Award as a TV host at 16 and made her Broadway debut at 18 in Les Miserables

Danielle de Niese says: 

“I fell in love with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s beautiful score and melodies as a child and now even more so with these gorgeous new orchestrations which are so rich and romantic. I am so excited about playing and exploring my fantastic character, Giulietta and returning to the West End. Working with Laura Pitt-Pulford and Jamie Bogyo will be great fun and sharing the stage with the inimitable Michael Ball will be beyond amazing!”

Olivier Award-nominated Laura Pitt-Pulford will play Rose. Laura was nominated for a 2016 Olivier Award for her performance as Millie in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at the Open Air Theatre, Regents Park. She also played Betty Shaefer in Sunset Boulevard at the Harold Pinter theatre in 2008. Her other credits include the title role in Nell Gwynn on tour and at the Globe theatre, Falsettos at the Other Palace and The Sound of Music at Leicester Curve.

Anna Unwin recently graduated from The Arts Educational School and is making her West End debut in the role of Jenny.

As previously announced, Jamie Bogyo will play the role of Alex – originated by Michael Ball in 1989 – with Michael playing the role of George.

On today’s casting announcement, Michael Ball says:

“I feel privileged and very lucky to introduce our fabulous leading ladies joining me in Aspects of Love. The incredible Laura Pitt-Pulford who is no stranger to the West End as Rose and the divine Danielle de Niese, the renowned opera singer, as Giulietta. Making her West End debut as my daughter Jenny, a wonderful new talent, Anna Unwin. I couldn’t be happier. First day of school, Monday!”

Producer Nica Burns says:

“This is the first production to be mounted especially for the West End since the original 1989 production and the creative team and cast under Jonathan Kent’s direction are enjoying exploring the story from a 21st century perspective.  Michael Ball, so brilliant as the original Alex and whose idea this production was, is now playing George and of course singing Love Changes Everything. We are delighted to share a video of our orchestra call of Seeing is Believing, one of our beautiful melodies, sung by Laura Pitt-Pulford and Jamie Bogyo, which will give you a feel of our new orchestra configuration.”

With original music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black and Charles Hart, based on the novel by David Garnett and directed by Jonathan Kent, this heart-breaking story of passion, love, life and loss in post-war France and Italy, follows three generations of the Dillingham family spanning 17 years.

Aspects of Love will begin performances at the Lyric Theatre London on 12 May 2023 for a limited 26-week season until 11 November 2023.
