About this item
Starring multiplatinum artist Josh Groban, Tony(R)-winning Idina Menzel ("Wicked") and Tony(R) nominated Adam Pascal ("RENT"), "Chess In Concert" revives the eclectic yet wonderfully pop 1984 concept album featuring the music of ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and lyrics of Tim Rice ("Jesus Christ Superstar", "The Lion King", "Evita"). Recorded at London's Royal Albert Hall in May 2008, this spectacular "Chess In Concert" - introduced by Rice and with the 50-piece City of London Philharmonic and 100-voice West End Chorus - finally fulfills the promise of the popular cult musical. The Chess concept album, about a romantic triangle between two players in a world chess championship and the woman who manages one and falls in love with the other, was recorded in 1984 and scored the U.K. #1 hit "I Know Him So Well" and worldwide favorite "One Night In Bangkok." The theatrical version opened in London's West End in 1986 and played for three years. A 1988 Broadway production only ranfor 68 performances.
