Keeping With Tradition:
Fiddler on the Roof is Magnificent!
by Pat Lindsey
The orchestra was on the stage, the fiddler was on the roof, and the audience was enjoying a soothing breeze at The Muny Saturday night as it became enveloped in “Tradition” during the opening of “Fiddler on the Roof.” This is the story of Russian Jews living in the small village of Anatevka, Russia in 1905 when Russia was still an empire ruled by a tsar. While much of Western Europe was becoming more free and democratic, Russia was still rooted in traditional ideas of absolute monarchy.
