Set against the backdrop of a chess tournament, this rock opera uses the game of chess - with all of its power plays, manipulations, and sacrificial pawns - as a metaphor for the contemporary conflicts in love and life as well as global strife and peaceful coexistence.
With lyrics by Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita) and music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus (Mamma Mia!), this regional premiere of an all-new version is rich with dance, penetrating tempos, and the chart-busting pop hit One Night In Bangkok.
