Event Details

The Coachella Valley Repertory / CV Rep presents CHESS with book by Richard Nelson, lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson

Performances are Tuesday (3rd and 4th week of the run) through Saturday at 7:30 PM and Saturday and Sundays at 2:00 PM

The collaborators on CHESS are giants of rock music (ABBA) and rock musicals, and here they have created a complex rock opera that played to full Broadway houses and standing ovations. In this musical, the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics, and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion, and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American, but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes “One Night in Bangkok” and “Heaven Help My Heart.”
