»This is quite possibly the most convincing — and least embarrassingly cliché-ridden — Fiddler imaginable.« [The New York Times] Barrie Kosky’s celebrated production of the musical about the milkman Tevje who lives in the East European shtetl of Anatevka, where he battles with Jewish traditions, his god, the selfish loves of his three oldest daughters, and the tragic flight from pogroms. It is a work that brings together the pain and joy of life, touching audiences with its humour and humanity. »It allows you to revel in a mightily entertaining production. There is wild dancing to the powerful klezmers performed by the orchestra of the Komische Oper under the conductorship of Koen Schoots.« [FAZ]
»Do you have children? – Five!« Out of love of Jewish tradition, in keeping with Jewish tradition: the poor milkman Tevje in the East European shtetl of Anatevka wants to use the help of the marriage broker Jente to find the best-situated husbands for his three eldest daughters, Zeitel, Hodel and Chava. Yet the girls have their own ideas when it comes to happiness ... out of his love for them, Tevje lets them have their way – and accepts all their nonsense with wit and humanity. Well, almost all of it. Only when faced with anti-Jewish pogroms and in the moment of their tragic flight to America are the father and his outcast daughter Chava reunited in each other’s arms.
The book for Anatevka, titled Fiddler on the Roof in the original English version, was written by Joseph Stein using motifs from the famous Yiddish tales by Sholem Aleichem, which were penned between 1894 and 1916 under the title Tewje, the Milkman. With over 3,000 performances on Broadway alone, Jerry Brock created one of the genre’s most successful yet also tragic masterpieces. Anatevka tells the story of the humour and suffering of heart-rending characters caught between catastrophe and the joy of survival, in what is probably the twentieth century’s most life-affirming tragi-comedy about the complications of love, life and marriage.
