BREAKDOWN

FLORENCE: Strong belt voice (to E), Mid-thirties. Born in Hungary (so musn't look like an "All-American Girl"); clever, theatrical, touching, vivacious, volatile. Fredrick's chess "second."
FREDDIE: Rock tenor (to C), Mid-thirities, An American chess champion. A cross between Bobby Fisher and John McEnroe. Arrogant and tempermental, but a genius;his chess playing is revolutionary. We need to see his artistry along with his danger and his obsessivness.
ANATOLY: Baritone (to G sharp), Mid- Thirties - early Forties. A Russian chess champion. Unexprectedly charming. He doesn't seem a romantic hero at first, but becomes one through his personality. An intelligent, feeling, passionate man.
MOLOKOV: Bass (down to F sharp), Fifties. (Not a fake, comic, stage Russion). Intellectually formidable. Seemingly a father figure to Florence. Anatoly's chess "second." An actor who sings well.
SVETLANNA: Strong belt voice. Late thirties, Antoly's wife. Domestic, wholesome, homey. A dramatic contrast to Florence - not a contemporary cosmopolitan woman.
WALTER: Bass-baritone (down to G sharp). Mid forties - fifties. A marjeting agent. Seemingly respectable, substantial, trustworthy. An actor who sings well.
ARBITER: Rock high baritone (up to A). Thirty to early forties. International businessman. Smooth, but with a quick temper.
ENSEMBLE: Various ages. Strong singers to play various roles.
