this is an outstanding production. All the actors, from the leads right down to the smallest ones, were excellent. I also thought the scenic design worked very well and the lighting was great. I couldn't find one thing to criticise (and I'm told I'm very picky). We thoroughly enjoyed it. for the lady who found the seats uncomfortable, I would recommend asking for loge seating in the future. they cost a little more, but are well worth it.
Quotes & Highlights
Read an interview with Lyric Opera San Diego General Director Leon Natker who plays Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof.
This rousing musical, based on the stories of Shalom Aleichem, takes place in pre-revolutionary Russia and centers on the life of Tevye, a milkman who is trying to keep his family’s traditions in place while marrying off his three older daughters as times are changing and Russia is on the brink of revolution. Tevye is trying to keep everyone, and everything, together even as the daughters want to make their own matches.
Seldom has any musical so magically blended music, dance and literature. The show, based on the stories of Sholem Aleichem, is touching, warm, funny and inspiring, making it a wonderful treat for the whole family. Lyric’s production will feature Leon Natker (formerly Cantor of Congregation Dor Hadash) as Tevye the Dairyman. He will be joined by company favorites Fran Hartshorn as Golde, Susan E.V. Boland as Yente and Ria Carey as Frumah Sarah. Tevye’s daughters will be played by Eileen Bowman (Tzeitel), Megan Weston (Hodel) and Raechele Hans (Chava).
When asked about the show, company Artistic Director J. Sherwood Montgomery said: “Fiddler on the Roof is like visiting your grandmother’s house – a place to get your soul cleansed. Joseph Stein and his collaborators arrived at a remarkably effective mixture that thoroughly entertains without ever losing a sense of connection with the more painful realities that underlie the humor. The show evokes haunting memories of a world that still lingers deep inside us. It is one of those shows you just never forget and always enjoy.”
