This live performance of selections from the musical Chess, recorded live at Royal Albert Hall in 2008, follows the British version of the musical created by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice. The story, set to 1980s-era pop music, dramatises the politically driven Cold War-era tensions that surface when an American faces a Soviet Russian in the World Chess Championship, and the love triangle that arises when the woman who manages one falls in love with the other.
