ABOUT THE EVENT

Written in 1984 by ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice, Chess tells  a story of love and political intrigue, set against the background of  the Cold War in the late 1970s/early 1980s, in which superpowers attempt  to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends.

Two of the world’s greatest chess masters, one American, one Russian,  are in danger of becoming the pawns of their governments as their  battle for the world title gets under way. Simultaneously their lives  are thrown into further confusion by a Hungarian refugee, a remarkable  woman who becomes the centre of their emotional triangle. This mirrors  the heightened passions of the political struggles that threaten to  destroy lives and loves. Includes the international hit singles ‘I Know  Him So Well’ and ‘One Night In Bangkok’. Other well-known songs from the  score include ‘Anthem’, 'Someone Else's Story', ‘Heaven Help my Heart’  and ‘Pity The Child’.
