With music by ABBA legends Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and lyrics by the incomparable Sir Tim Rice, the iconic musical Chess returns to the West End for the first time since a limited run at the London Coliseum in 2018.
At the height of the Cold War, two chess masters meet in Bangkok to battle for the world championship, but their greatest contest is for the love of one woman. Telling a story of love and political intrigue, and set against the background of the Cold War in the late 1970s/early 1980s, Chess features an incredible score including classics such as “I Know Him So Well” and “One Night in Bangkok”.
Starring Samantha Barks (Frozen, Les Misérables) as Florence and Hadley Fraser (City of Angels, Phantom Of The Opera) as Anatoly, and with the 50-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra accompanying, this concert at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane is not to be missed.
