From the minds behind ABBA and The Lion King comes CHESS, a Grandmaster of a Show. The pawns in this dramatic rock opera form a love triangle: the brash American chess star, the earnest Russian champion, and the manager who is torn between them. Follow the machinations and manipulations from Italy to Bangkok in this staged concert, performed in front a massive orchestra and thrilling chorus.
