Fiddler on the Roof

Synopsis

'If I were a rich man...'
 
1905. 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.
 
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. This brand new staging is directed by Daniel Evans, whose hit productions include Show Boat and My Fair Lady. His outstanding creative team includes designer Lez Brotherston (Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake) and choreographer Alistair David (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers).
