The musical is based on a collection of short stories entitled Tevye the Dairyman, which tells the story of a poor Jewish dairyman and his family in early twentieth century Russia just before the Russian Revolution.
The title for the musical comes from Marc Chagall’s famous painting The Fiddler. The Fiddler is a metaphor for survival, through tradition and joyfulness, in a time of imbalance and uncertainty. The play is set in a small Russian village of Anatevka, and the themes of tradition, family, love and marriage, regret and optimism run through the music and dance.
