Chess the Musical at the London Coliseum from 26th April to 2nd June 2018


From ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus with lyrics by Tim Rice , Chess the Musical is coming to the London Coliseum in 2018.

This politically driven musical drama revolves around a Cold War chess match for the world title. The battle between the American and Soviet players is being twisted and turned by their respective governments for politically motivated purposes. When an intriguing Hungarian refugee enters the picture she becomes another player in their emotional game. Being used as pawns by their governments and caught between two world powers, the struggle threatens to destroy their lives.

Chess has an iconic soundtrack which includes such hits as I Know Him So Well, One Night in Bangkok, Anthem, Heaven Help My Heart, and Pity the Child.

This revival of Chess is being presented by the ENO and will feature their award-winning orchestra and chorus. Chess is being directed by Laurence Connor (School of Rock, Miss Saigon) with choreography by Stephen Means. The run opens 26 April 2018 and closes 02 June.
