Fiddler on the Roof

Guildhall School End of Year Musical

Fiddler on the Roof, Guildhall's end of year musical

The Guildhall School presents Fiddler on the Roof, the first musical to exceed 3,000 performances when it first opened on Broadway in 1964.

Tevye, a poor milkman and father of five daughters, struggles to maintain the traditions of his Jewish culture and religion in early twentieth century Imperial Russia. He and his family settle in a small village where the oppressive Tsar now orders the eviction of all Jews. His strong-minded daughters don’t help to make his life any easier when they decide to marry for love.

In this life-affirming tale, Tevye’s faith, love and pride help him endure in a life that is as precarious as a fiddler sitting on a roof.

Promoted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
