Set in pre-Revolutionary Russia, Fiddler On The Roof takes place in a small Jewish village. The story revolves around a dairyman, Tevye, and his attempts to preserve the traditions of his faith and family in the face of a changing world. When his eldest daughter begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butcher that he has already chosen for her, Tevye must choose between his own daughter's happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, there are other dangerous forces at work which threaten to destroy the very life he is trying to preserve. The musical features the hit songs, ?Tradition,? ?Matchmaker, Matchmaker,? ?If I Were A Rich Man? and ?Sunrise, Sunset.?
