About the Event
From the company that brought you West Side Story, The Wizard of Oz and My Fair Lady, the
multi award winning New Lyric are delighted to be staging their new Opera House production of the Broadway Classic, Fiddler on the Roof.
Fiddler on the Roof centres around the story of a poor Jewish milkman, Tevye and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions. He must cope with both the strong- willed actions of his three eldest daughters - each one's choice of husband moves further away from the customs of his faith - and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
The original Broadway production of the show had the distinction of being the first musical theatre run in history to surpass 3,000 performances and for 10 years held the record
for the longest-running Broadway musical.
Winner of nine Tony Awards ( including Best
Musical and Best Score), Fiddler on the Roof
enjoys an enduring international popularity with audiences of all ages.
With stunning sets, wonderful ensemble and talented New Lyric front line, a truly emotional uplifting and unforgettable theatrical experience is guaranteed.
Includes musical numbers such as “Sunrise Sunset”, “Matchmaker”, “Tradition” and the classic “If I were a Rich Man” beautifully accompanied by the New Lyric orchestra.
