About the Musical
This affectionately humorous portrait of life in a Jewish village in Tsarist Russia centres on Tevye, a milkman-philosopher who finds his values challenged by his daughters’ insistence on following their hearts rather than the dictates of tradition. Meanwhile, more sinister changes are on the horizon – ones that threaten the community’s very existence.
