About Fiddler on the Roof
St Annes Parish Operatic Society is delighted to present one of the most popular and famous musicals of all time.
Set in1905 in a small village in Imperial Russia. Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his wife, Golde, are blessed with five witty and beautiful daughters. The matchmaker Yente, who believes any husband is better than no husband, is busy making sensible marriage plans for them all.
But Tevye’s bold daughters have their own ideas about who to marry and as change and new ideas roll in from the big cities, dissolving the old ways of life, the sisters are not alone in their lust for something new. Fiddler on the Roof’s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
This celebrated and much loved musical is packed with show-stopping songs including the hits If I Were A Rich Man, Tradition and Matchmaker. The original record-breaking Broadway production won nine Tony Awards including Best Musical. An exciting production from a talented cast which appeals to all ages.
