Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof




A classic musical based on the short story "Tevye and His Daughters" by Sholom Aleichem.


Story:

When Tevye's eldest daughter, Tzeitel, begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butcher that he has already chosen for her, Tevye must choose between his own daughter's happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, there are other forces at work in Anatevka, dangerous forces which threaten to destroy the very life he is trying to preserve.
