 The legendary ‘Grand Master Of A Show’ (Newsweek) debuts at Perth Concert Hall in a powerful concert-style production
celebrating the pop-rock musical score.

Featuring Logie-nominated and recent star of CHICAGO Natalie Bassingthwaighte; Aria chart-topping vocalist Paulini, New York Metropolitan Opera singer Alexander Lewis; semi-finalist in The Voice 2020 Mark Furze; musical theatre favourite Rob Mills; opera singer Eddie Muliaumaseali’i, and musical theatre all-rounder Brittanie Shipway, with backing by twenty-five professional musicians from Perth Symphony Orchestra.

Set during the Cold War, two of the world’s greatest chess players, one American, one Russian, find themselves pawns of their own governments’ sparring in the turbulent East-West political arena. As the game climaxes and stakes rise, Florence Vassey, a Hungarian-born refugee is caught between the two grandmasters, in a triangle of both love and power.

 With music by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus (ABBA), lyrics by Tim Rice and Björn Ulvaeus, and book by Time Rice (The Lion King, EVITA); CHESS THE MUSICAL features smash-hits ‘I Know Him So Well’ and ‘One Night In Bangkok’.

Directed by Tyran Parke, this powerful new production will be the music theatre event of 2021 that cannot be missed.

Licensed exclusively by Music Theatre International (Australasia).
