Chess is a musical with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, formerly of ABBA, with lyrics by Tim Rice.

This highly-acclaimed musical tells the story of a politically driven, Cold War-era chess tournament between two men—an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster — and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score. Several numbers, including "One Night in Bangkok" and "I Know Him So Well", are international hits.

Chess placed seventh in a BBC Radio 2 listener poll of the U.K.'s "Number One Essential Musical”.
