If you missed seeing Chess when it was at Newcastle's Theatre Royal, the producers of the acclaimed musical have released a video of the highlights.

Currently touring the UK until April 2011, Chess tells the story of two of the world's greatest chess masters as they battle it out at the world chess championships. But their greatest contest is for the love of one woman. Amidst political intrigue and international conspiracies, the American and Russian fight to win the heart of Florence Vassy, in a romantic triangle that mirrors the heightened passions of the Cold War all set to an explosive score.

Strictly Come Dancing's Craig Revel Horwood directs Tim Rice and Bjorn Ulvaeus's classic musical with a superb cast of West End stars including James Fox, Shona White and Daniel Koek.
