Loved it, loved it, loved it. It was put together very well and the story line was spellbinding. And the music and, especially the singing, was wonderful. Aside from the sticky weather, it made for a perfect evening at Wolf Trap.

More Information


Set in a small town in Tsarist Russia, Fiddler follows the story of a poor Jewish milkman, Tevye, and his family of five daughters as they cope with increasingly difficult social and political upheavals that threaten the traditions of the small town.

A joyful narrator, Tevye explains that their lives are like a fiddler perched on a roof: one of survival through tradition in a life of uncertainty and imbalance. But as his three eldest (and strong-willed) daughters push those traditions for the sake of love, Tevye must reexamine his philosophy and decide what is more important: family or tradition?
