‘Tevye’ the dairyman is an old-fashioned father who wants to see his daughters married in the traditional Jewish way. But revolution is in the air and the young are guided by their hearts, not their elders. Set in Tsarist Russia in 1905, this is the tale of the emotional turmoil of a family facing upheaval in their lives.
