Old traditions and young love collide in this wonderful musical, that focuses on different important matters in our world: Such as stopping bullies, supporting each other and of course love. It also sparks new questions: When is something a tradition? Is a tradition really just a set of rules? And when is it time to try something new?
In Fiddler on the Roof we follow Tevye and his family, as they struggle with poverty and trying to make ends meet in their home town Anatevka. From Tevye's point of view on tradition his daughters should marry someone who is rich and succesful. When the wealthy butcher of the town asks for the oldest 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 it since Motel is poor. Now, what matters the most? Love or tradition?
