Chess is a rock opera with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of ABBA fame. The musical dates back to a 1984 concept album, with staged productions in London in 1986 and New York in 1988.

In Chess, the game of chess is used as a metaphor for romantic rivalries and the US-Soviet rivalry during the Cold War. The main characters form a romantic triangle: Freddie, the ill-mannered American Grandmaster, Anatoly, the intense Russian champion challenger, and Florence, the passionate Hungarian-American female chess second. Florence arrives at the international chess championship as the chess second to the American but falls in love with the Russian. Meanwhile, Russian and American political operatives seek to manipulate the three main characters and the outcome of the chess tournament for their own political ends. From Merano, Italy to Bangkok, Thailand, the main characters, and the politicians and spies around them, all struggle to get the upper hand.

Seeking 12 talent(s) for this role
We will also cast an on-stage vocal ensemble of 12 made up of equal numbers of each voice part.

They will function as an extension of the Arbiter as observers of the players’ moves, on and off the chess board. There will be some light blocking at the top of the show. In addition to all ensemble numbers, these vocalists will be featured as the “pop”/“rock” choir in many of the solo numbers, such as “Where I Want to Be” and “Nobody’s Side.”
