Two of the world’s chess grandmasters, one American and one Russian, are in danger of becoming the political pawns of their governments as they battle for the world chess title and the attention of the same woman.

Written by ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, with lyrics by Tim Rice, Chess in Concert brings all the intrigue, drama and romance of the musical together in concert with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.

Stunning soloists and a large chorus will perform international hit singles ‘I Know Him So Well’, ‘One Night in Bangkok’, the epic ballad ‘Anthem’ and more for one weekend season only at the Isaac Theatre Royal, 19 – 21 June 2020.
