Chess: The Musical

Sunday, February 16, 2020, 10:30 PM - 12:30 AM

Central Piedmont Theatre presents Chess Halton Theater Chess is a rock musical with music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, lyrics by Tim Rice, and a book by Richard Nelson based on an idea by Rice. Taking place in the final years of the cold war, it is the story of an American chess champion, his Russian opponent who defects to the west, and a Hungarian born American who transfers her affections from the American to the Russian without bringing happiness to anyone. 'Chess' is a complex rock opera where the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super power politics and international intrigues. Lovers, politicians and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes 'One Night in Bangkok,' 'Heaven Help My Heart' and 'Someone Else's Story.'
