Fiddler on the Roof was one of Broadway's greatest successes in the second half of the 1960s. The collaboration of musical composer Jerry Bock with lyricist Sheldon Harnick and Jerome Robbins' direction and choreography left their mark on the New York scene, even before Norman Jewison's film adaptation further increased the audience for the tragicomic story of Tevye the dairyman and his five daughters. In a pre-Revolution Russian shtetl, Anatevka, Tevye's three eldest daughters refuse the husbands their father intended for them, thus breaking ancient tradition. The romantic comedy quickly takes a tragic turn: threatened by a pogrom, the Jewish villagers of Anatevka must flee for their lives. The dream of leaving Europe for the United States turns out to be Tevye's only real solution to escape the anti-Semitism that is spreading through Europe. With this production, which had a spectacular premiere in Berlin, Barrie Kosky, the director of last season's Pelléas et Mélisande, returns to the Opéra national du Rhin.
