Central Piedmont Theatre to perform 'Chess' Feb. 14 - 23
Central Piedmont Theatre is proud to present "Chess" on the Halton Theater stage Feb. 14–23, 2020.
In this musical by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, members of the Swedish music group ABBA, and lyrics by Tim Rice, “Chess” is used as a metaphor for romantic rivalries and the U.S.-Soviet rivalry during the Cold War. As the story unfolds, the main characters form a love triangle: the ill-mannered American Grandmaster, the intense Russian champion who plans on defecting to the West, and the Hungarian-American female chess second, who arrives at the International Championships with the American but falls in love with the Russian.
From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians, and spies all struggle to get the upper-hand. Just as relevant today as it was 30 years ago, “Chess” blends the raw emotion of modern opera with the edginess of synth-pop and rock n' roll.
The Thursday, Feb. 20 performance of "Chess: The Musical" is cancelled due to inclement weather. Ticketholders will receive an email with more information on ticket exchanges.
- Feb. 14, 15, 21, and 22 at 7:30 p.m.
- Feb. 16 and 23 at 2:30 p.m.
Central Piedmont Central Campus, Overcash Center, Halton Theater, 1206 Elizabeth Ave., Charlotte.
