Hertford Theatre
Directed by John Hebden & John Tripp

Join the award winning cast of Ware Operatic as they perform the legendary musical, CHESS.

With music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, of ABBA fame, with Lyrics by Tim Rice and featuring the iconic songs 'I Know Him So Well', 'One Night in Bangkok', and 'Someone Else's Story'.

Who are the pawns and who are the players? Lovers, politicians, and spies all play their part in this story of passion and betrayal set amidst the backdrop of the Cold War. The volatile American, the troubled Russian, and the vivacious Hungarian; when human lives are just pieces on a political chess board, can anybody truly win?
