Fiddler on the Roof is the beloved story of the small, tradition-steeped town of Anatevka, Russia where Jews and Russians live in delicate balance. During the course of the show, the time honoured traditions of Anatevka are both embraced and challenged by Tevye and his colourful community, as they witness his daughters, Tzeitel, Hodel, and Chava, grow up and fall in love in a time of extraordinary change.

Fiddler on the Roof’s Broadway premier became the longest-running Broadway musical in history, a title it maintained for almost ten years. It is a story that captures the essential human longings for love, community, success, freedom, family and meaning. Fiddler features such iconic songs as the beautiful “Sunrise, Sunset” the boisterous “If I Were a Rich Man”, and the classic “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.”
