CHESS THE MUSICAL’s legendary rock-opera score and powerful story of conflict and love has astounded audiences across the globe. Set during the height of the Cold War, two of the world’s greatest chess players, one American, one Russian, find themselves pawns of their own governments’ sparring in the turbulent East-West political arena. As the game climaxes and stakes rise, Florence Vassey, a Hungarian-born refugee finds herself caught in the hurricane between the two grand masters, in a triangle of power and love.
With music by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus (ABBA), book and lyrics by Tim Rice, CHESS THE MUSICAL is arguably one of the most memorable scores ever heard.
