Fiddler on the Roof
From September 2020 - Sydney Opera House & Comedy Theatre Melbourne
THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE. THE SOUND OF TRADITION.
Experience Fiddler on the Roof in a new way – performed in Yiddish, the language of Tevye and his family!
Following sold-out seasons in New York, we’re delighted to present Australian audiences with a unique, authentic language version of this much-loved musical theatre classic.
With direction by Oscar and Tony Award winner Joel Grey, A Fidler afn Dakh “strikes a deep emotional chord” and “offers a kind of authenticity no other American Fiddler ever has” (The New York Times).
Fiddler on the Roof has captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences around the world for over 55 years with its humour, warmth and honesty. It follows the heart-warming journey of a family whose traditions are turned upside down as the modern world starts to affect life in their idyllic village. This classic tale is a celebration of life, love, family and ultimately a story of hope.
One of the most renowned musicals of all time, the original Broadway production was directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. With book by Joseph Stein and based on Sholem Aleichem’s classic Yiddish stories, Fiddler on the Roof’s celebrated score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick features songs including “Traditsye”(Tradition), “Mattshmaker”(Matchmaker) and “Ven Ikh Bin A Rotshild” (If I Were A Rich Man).
Don’t miss the beloved story of a community and its struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world. The little town of Anatevka will bustle like you’ve never heard it before.
