It’s the choices you make
1905. For a father in rural Russia, the times are moving on. Is it his daughter or his faith, his village or his life? When those he loves pick away at the thread of tradition, his choices are more and more impossible to make.
With glorious songs such as If I Were a Rich Man and Miracle of Miracles, this classic musical follows the fate of Tevye and his daughters in a story of family, belonging and the dangers of a changing world.

“Vibrant and visceral”
“(Patrick) Brennan is brilliant and a linchpin for the entire production”

“Ingenious use of costume”
“It is quite simply astonishing.”
“Sparkling, touching and powerful”
“It’s funny, it’s boisterous, it’s poignant – it’s magnificent!”
