About the Show
Fiddler takes place in the little village of Anatevka, where Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Its celebrated score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, features songs loved the world over: “Tradition”, "Sunrise, Sunset", "If I Were A Rich Man", and "Matchmaker" to name a few.
