TO LIFE! TO LIFE! L’CHAIM!

Fiddler on the Roof, the tale of Tevye, a Jewish peasant in turn-of-the-century Russia, and his difficulties with maintaining tradition in the midst of change, has had universal appeal ever since its premiere in 1964.  The score includes the hit songs “Tradition,” “To Life,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” and “Sunrise, Sunset.”

Fiddler on the Roof takes place in the Jewish village of Anatevka, Russia, in 1905.  Its plot revolves around Tevye, a dairyman, his wife Golde, and their five daughters.  Tevye’s world is challenged by impending change.  Tzeitel, his eldest daughter, marries a poor tailor after Tevye has promised her to a wealthy widowed butcher.  Hodel, his second daughter, marries a revolutionary and follows him to Siberia, while Chava, his third daughter, marries a Christian.  At the end ofthe musical, the Czar’s Cossacks destroy Anatevka as Tevye and his family leaves for an unknown future in America.  The show’s title – a fiddler on the roof who tries to maintain his balance while playing – suggests the desire for constancy in the face of change.
