‘If I were a rich man ...’

Fiddler on the Roof

Jerry Bock
In the shtetl of Anatevka, somewhere in eastern Europe, life is strictly defined by Jewish tradition. Tevye the milkman struggles with this. And with his God. And with his three oldest daughters and their stubborn ideas about love. Until one day, when the entire community is forced to flee the pogroms ...
A long time ago, or perhaps not so very long ago ... there was this Jewish shtetl called Anatevka, in Russia’s vast expanses, where the milkman Tevye lived with his wife Golde and their five daughters. The three oldest, Zeitel, Hodel and Chava, were expected to marry in accordance with the venerable dictates of Jewish tradition, and to find husbands as wealthy as possible thanks to the ministrations of the matchmaker Yente.
