The Show
The First West End production of Chess since 1986 starring Michael Ball, Alexandra Burke, Murray Head, Tim Howar and Cassidy Janson.

 This epic musical love story, will open at the London Coliseum Thursday 26 April 2018 (Press night on Tuesday 1 May 2018) for a strictly limited 5 week season.

 Written in 1984 by ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King, Evita), Chess tells a story of love and political intrigue, set against the background of the Cold War in the late 1970s/early 1980s, in which superpowers attempt to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends.

Two of the world’s greatest chess masters, one American, one Russian, are in danger of becoming the pawns of their governments as their battle for the world title gets under way.

Simultaneously their lives are thrown into further confusion by a Hungarian refugee, a remarkable woman who becomes the centre of their emotional triangle.

This mirrors the heightened passions of the political struggles that threaten to destroy lives and loves.

Includes the international hit singles ‘I Know Him So Well’ and ‘One Night In Bangkok’.

Other well-known songs from the score include ‘Anthem’, ‘Someone Else’s Story’, ‘Heaven Help my Heart’ and ‘Pity The Child’.



Featuring English National Opera’s award-winning Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by John Rigby with choreography by Stephen Mear.

 This new West End production will be directed by Laurence Connor, whose recent credits include School of Rock and Miss Saigon on Broadway and in the West End, Les Misérables on Broadway, and the international Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour.

This is the fourth production in collaboration with ENO by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade.

"Superb performance"20/5/2018

"It was a privilege to watch Chess. Absolutely fantastic singing by Michael Ball, Alexandra Burke and others and excellent staging. I don`t recommend balcony seats at the Coliseum as there is a restricted view of the stage which was not previously mentioned."

"Great production. Excellent cast. A must see!"16/5/2018
