Old traditions and young love collide in this wonderful musical that covers a number of important issues, from putting a stop to bullies, supporting one another and of course love. It also sparks new questions: When does something become a tradition? Is a tradition really just a set of rules? And when is it time to try something new?
Fiddler on the Roof follows Tevye and his family, as they struggle with poverty and trying to make ends meet in their home town Anatevka. In Tevye's traditional point of view, his daughters should marry someone rich and succesful. When the wealthy local butcher asks for his eldest´s daughter Tzeitel's hand, a conflict within the family starts. Tzeitel would like to marry her childhood friend, Motel, but Tevye is very much against the union since Motel is poor. But what matters the most? Love or tradition?
