"In this production of Chess," according to press notes, "the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, political power-plays and international intrigues. From one match to another, the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score by ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, with book by Richard Nelson and lyrics by Tim Rice."
