A film version, also titled Fiddler on the Roof, was produced in It stars The following synopsis is provided to give you a full account of the story of Fiddler .
But here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof. Trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck. It isn't easy. You may ask, why do we stay up there if it's so dangerous? Well, we stay because Anatevka is our home.
Even a poor tailor is entitled to some happiness. That's true. Said it singing Amen. A man sends you a message, at least talk to him! I don't want to Talk to him! All right! After the Sabbath, Ill talk to him! All right, I'll talk to him. Well, it's getting late.
Where is everybody? I don't know, Papa. Children, come down! We are lighting the candles. Not now, Motel. Hurry up, children!
Hurry up! Not now! Golde, the sun is almost down. What is it? Reb Tevye. Good Sabbath, Reb Tevye. Hurry, children, hurry. It's getting late. Is Reb Lazar Wolf at home? He's in the back. May I er Come in.
And all this from killing innocent animals? Don't touch anything. Well, Tevye! You're here. Well, sit down, sit down. Thank you, thank you. Have a drink. I won't insult you by saying no. How goes it with you, Reb Tevye? How should it go? You're right. And you? The same.
I'm sorry to hear that. How is your erbrother-in-law He's doing very well. He wrote you? No, not lately. Ah, if he was doing badly, he would write. Oh, yes, I do. But er There is no use talking about it. Tevye, I understand how you feel. After all, you have a few more without her. Ah, I see. Today you want one. Tomorrow you may want two. What would I do with two?
The same as you do with one. This is very important to me. Why is it so important to you? Frankly, because I'm lonely. Reb Lazar, what are you talking about? How can a little cow keep you company? Little cow? Is that what you call her? But that's what she is! What are you talking about? Don't you know? Of course I know! We are talking about my new milk cow. The one you want to download from me.
A milk cow! A milk cow so I won't be lonely? I'm talk I'm talking about your daughter. Your daughter Tzeitel. My daughter Tzeitel? I see her every Thursday in my butcher's shop.
And she's made a very good impression on me. A very good impression. Reb Tevye, I like her. Why don't we just shake hands and call it a match, huh? And I will be good to her. I like her. What do you think? I never really liked him. Why should I? You can have a fine conversation with him if you talk about kidneys and livers. On the other hand, not everyone has to be a scholar.
And with a butcher my daughter will surely never know hunger. Maybe I misjudged him. He's a good man. He likes her. And he'll try to make her happy. What do I think? It's a match! You agree? I agree. Oh, Tevye! You've made me a happy man. Let's drink on it. Why not? To you! No, my friend. To you. The both of us!
To our agreement! To our prosperity. To our good health and happiness. And most important of all, Er After the marriage, we will be related. Your papa. Lazar Wolf, I always wanted a son. But I wanted one a little younger than myself! Ah, thank you, Your Honour. Yes, Your Honour? I have some news I think I should tell you as a friend. Yes, Your Honour. I'm giving you this news because I like you. You're honest and decent even though you are a Jew.
Thank you, Your Honour. How often does a man get a compliment like that? And the news? We have received orders that sometime soon this district is to have a little unofficial demonstration. A pogrom here? No, no, no. Just a little unofficial demonstration. How little? Just some mischief, so if an inspector comes through, he can see we did our duty. I don't know why there has to be this trouble between people. But I thought I should tell you. You are a good man. If I may say so, it's too bad you're not a Jew.
That's what I like about you, Tevye. You're always joking. Congratulations again for your daughter. Oh, about the other matter. It won't be too bad. I wouldn't worry. Dear God. Did you have to send me news like that today of all days? I know, I know we are the chosen people. But once in a while, can't you choose someone else? Anyway, thank you for sending a husband for my Tzeitel.
Laban fooled him and gave him his ugly daughter Leah. So to marry Rachel, Jacob was forced to work another seven years. So, you see, children, the Bible clearly teaches us you can never trust an employer. Bielke: And that is what the Bible teaches us? Is your papa up yet? No, Mama. Enough lessons! Back to the house, there's work to be done! Go on, children. Another story tomorrow.
That was a very interesting lesson, Perchik. Do you think so? Although I don't know if the rabbi would agree with your interpretation.
Neither, I suppose, would the rabbi's son. My little sisters talk too much. And what do you know about him, except that he is the rabbi's son? At least I know this. He has no strange ideas about turning the world upside down.
Good day, Perchik. You have wit, even some intelligence! Perhaps, but what good is your brain?
Without curiosity, it is a rusty tool! Good day, Hodel! We have an old custom here! A boy talks respectfully to a girl. But that is too traditional for an advanced thinker like Our traditions! Nothing must change. Everything is perfect as it is! We like our ways. Our ways are changing in other places. In the city, boys and girls can be affectionate without a matchmaker's permission? They hold hands together. They even dance together.
New dances Danced with Hodel I learned it in Kiev. Do you like it? Continue dancing with Perchik There. We've just changed an old custom. I mean, th I mean, good day! So, my prince is finally out of bed. The day's half gone. Well, what happened last night, besides you drinking like a peasant? Did you see Lazar Wolf? Well, what did he say? What did you say?
Where's Tzeitel? She's in the barn. Do you have news for me? Did you talk with Lazar Wolf? What happened? Patience, woman, patience. As the Good Book says, good news will stay. And bad news will refuse to leave.
And another saying goes Did you see Lazar? How was it? Sha, woman, sha. Are you still drunk or what? Here she is. Tzeitel, my lamb. Come here. You are to be congratulated. You are going to be married. What do you mean, Papa? Lazar Wolf has asked for your hand. I knew it! Dear God, I thank thee. I thank thee! Why do you have to What do you have to say, Tzeitel? What can she say? Let her say one word. May you grow old with him in fortune and honour.
Not like Fruma Sarah, that first wife of Lazar's.
She was a bitter woman, may she rest in peace. Not like my Tzeitel. And now I must thank Yente. My Tzeitel Until the JCC opened, the activities of the Windsor Jewish Community Council took place throughout the city, in schools and synagogue halls.
The combination of having a building-base and an enterprising Executive Director led to an ambitious programme of activities including a day camp, a wide range of well-being and educational classes, and commemorations of Yom Hashoah, Kristallnacht and Israel Independence Day. With the notable exceptions of the theatre workshop and adult choral society, the majority of these activities were designed for either the young or the older members of the community, with those in the middle serving on boards of directors, organisational and fundraising committees.
It was Eisenberg who formed the Centre Theatre Workshop in the mid s and directed all of its productions, with the exception of Fiddler. The significance of the Jewish community centre building itself cannot be overemphasised in terms of constructing the community's sense of identity. My interviews have made it clear that The Centre Theatre Workshop would not have happened without this particular home base.
People participated in Fiddler because its preparation and performances took place in this building and they felt comfortable in it.
Although many of the participants mainly associated with the Centre through either fundraising activities or else their children, bringing them to Sunday Funday, or the pool in the summer, or Hebrew Collegiate, or dance lessons, some used it regularly as a social space as well. Due the prevalence of the automotive industry, Windsor's population has always been predominantly immigrant, the largest community being Italian.
Fiddler played to over people during its run and its audiences were, by best estimate, only half Jewish. They came to see a play in a place they never been in before — many came back to use the centre in other ways such as, the gym. It expanded our relationship with the rest of the city. It is, actually, representative of a nascent official Canadian policy of multiculturalism launched by Pierre Trudeau in In terms of cultural memory, the policy problematically constructs memory in essentialist, static and nostalgic terms in relation to dehistoricized ethnic homelands, atomizing communities of memory into separate 'ethnic' enclaves'.
This is Benedict Anderson's theory of nationalism built upon "an imagined political community" which many have said most perfectly fits the Canadian sense of nationhood. This is because, to many interpreters, Anderson's nationalisms seem always in flux while also anchored in a "civic" core that simply absorbs and co-opts racial, ethnic and cultural distinctions and details.
At school in the s we were taught that, while USAmerica was a melting pot, Canada was a mosaic. So while Windsor's Jewish community can be considered, in many ways to be archetypally primordial in its sense of ethnic sharing and face-to-face contact, it is equally shaped by its positioning within different imagined communities. What has come across forcefully and repeatedly in the accounts of Fiddler that I have heard so far is the sense of pride it engenders in everybody who participated — and this 6 includes performers, stage crew and audience members.
This often was framed in terms of the level of professionalism that was achieved by a completely untrained cast whose only theatre experience was within the context of the Jewish community. Many accounts focused on the accomplishment of the show-stopping, physically demanding bottle dance by a group of men that included a dentist, a shopkeeper and an insurance agent.
I consider the production to be an effervescence-producing ritual, which brought individual participants into a collective consciousness and solidarity. Durkheim noted that the temporality of these events can be extended by the use of symbols, through which moral systems are able to be efficiently passed through societies.
And while Fiddler was an aesthetic performance which mimetically embedded the symbols of religious ritual, emptying them of sacred meaning while reaffirming their culturally secular religious significance through an additional layer of communal performance, I believe that the production functions in similar affective ways.
Of course you do. To make it short, out of the whole town, he's cast his eye on Tzeitel. My Tzeitel? No, the Tzar's Tzeitel! Of course your Tzeitel! Such a match for my Tzeitel! He doesn't like Lazar. Good, so Lazar won't marry him. He wants the daughter, not the father. Listen to me, Golde. You send Tevye to him. Don't tell him what it's about. Let Lazar discuss it himself. He'll win him over, he's a good man and a wealthy man.
You'll let me know how it went. And you don't have to thank me, Golde. Because, aside from my fee, which Lazar will pay anyway, it gives me satisfaction to make people happy. Of course, true. So, er Goodbye, Golde, and you're welcome. Goodbye, Yente. Come, children. Get changed for the Sabbath. Hurry with your work! I'm not anxious for Yente to find me one.
Unless it's Motel, the tailor. I didn't ask you. Tzeitel, you're the oldest. They have to find you a match before they find me one. Then after her, one for me. Oh, Yente, Yente, Yente, Yente! Well, somebody has to arrange the matches. It might be someone wonderful. Someone interesting. And well off. And important. I thought you just had your eye on your books.
And you have your eye on the rabbi's son. We only have one rabbi and he only has one son. Why shouldn't I want the best? Because you're a girl from a poor family. So whatever Yente brings, you'll take. Of course right.
Oh, Hodel! Have I made a match for you! He's handsome, he's young All right, he's But he's a nice man, a good catch True? True I promise you'll be happy. And even if you're not. There's more to life than that. Don't ask me what. I found him Will you be a lucky bride. He's handsome, he's tall. That is, from side to side But he's a nice man, a good catch. Was that necessary?
Did you have to make him lame just before the Sabbath? That wasn't nice. It's enough you pick on me. Bless me with five daughters, a life of poverty, that's all right.
But what have you got against my horse? Really, sometimes I think, when things are too quiet up there, you say to yourself, "Let's see. So you're finally here, my breadwinner. I'll talk to you later. So why are you late today? His foot went lame. Hurry up. The sun won't wait.
And I have something important to tell you. I still have deliveries in the village. You'll be late for the Sabbath. I won't be late. You'll be late. I won't be late! If you ever stop talking, I won't be late! You can die from such a man. In other words, send us the cure. We've got the sickness already. Well, I'm not really complaining. After all, with your help, I'm starving to death. I realize, of course, that it's no shame to be poor. But it's no great honor either! So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?
Where's your horse? Well, it decided to take the day off. Have a good Sabbath. Thank you, Your Honour, thank you. You're late! You kept us all waiting! What happened to your horse? Look what it says in the paper. Look, look, look!
Stop braying like a pack of mules! Let the man talk. Talk, Avram. My paper came to the post office today, like it always does. Usually it comes on a Thursday, but it can be a day late Avram, that's not talking! That's babbling. The news What does it say? Well, I was reading my paper. It's nothing very important, a story about the crops in the Ukraine, and this and that. And then I saw this. All right. We all see it. It doesn't say.
Maybe the Tzar wanted the land. Maybe a plague? May the Tzar have his very own plague. What's the matter with you? Why don't you ever bring us some good news? It's not my fault. I only read it. May the authorities grow like onions, their heads in the ground. What good will your cursing do? You stand around, you curse and you chatter, and you don't do anything. You'll all chatter your way into the grave. Excuse me. You're not from this village. Where are you from? I was a student in the university there.
Tell me. Is that the place where you learned how not to respect your elders? That is where I learned there is more to life than talk. You should know about events in the outside world! Careful, my paper. Why should I break my head about the outside world? Let the outside world break its own head. Well put! All man laugh He is right. As the Good Book says, "If you spit in the air, it lands in your face.
You can't close your eyes to what's happening in the world. He's right and he's right? They can't both be right. You know, you are also right. He is right. He's too young to wipe his own nose. Good Sabbath, Tevye. Good Sabbath. Oh, yeah, I'm sorry. I apologize. Tevye, the rabbi's orders. Oh, of course.
So you're from Kiev, Reb er So you're a newcomer here, huh? As Abraham said, "I'm a stranger in a strange land. Forgive me. As King David said, "I'm slow of speech and slow of tongue. Here, Reb Perchik. Have a piece. Gave the piece of bread but Reb refused it.
Ah, take it. It's a blessing for me to give. Very well. For your sake. Thank you. You know, it's no crime to be poor. It is the rich who are the criminals. Some day, their wealth will be ours. Oh, that would be nice. If they would agree, I would agree. And who will make this miracle to come to pass? Ordinary people. Like you? Like me. Until your golden day comes, Reb Perchik, how will you live? By giving lessons to children. Do you have any children?
I have five daughters. Girls should learn too. Girls are people. A Radical! Oh, go away. I'd be willing to teach them, open their minds to great thoughts. I'd like them to know the Good Book. The Bible has many lessons for our times. Perchik, I'm a very poor man. But, food for lessons, huh? Good, good. Stay with us for the Sabbath. Of course, we don't eat like kings, but we don't starve either. As the Good Book says, "When a poor man eats a chicken, one of them is sick.
All right, all right! It doesn't exactly say that, but someplace, it has something about a chicken. Good Sabbath! Good Sabbath, Papa. Children, this is Perchik. Perchik, this is my eldest daughter. You have a pleasant daughter. I have five pleasant daughters. Ah, this is mine. And this is mine. And this is mine This is not mine. Perchik, this is MotelSo, you did us a favour and came home.
This is also mine. Golde, this is Perchik from Kiev. He's staying the Sabbath with us. He's a teacher. Would you like lessons from him? I heard that the rabbi who must praise himself has a congregation of one. Your daughter has a quick and witty tongue. Well, the wit she gets from me. As the Good Book says The Good Book can wait.
Get washed. Another blessing! Tzeitel, get the small table. Chava, the two chairs. Children, finish dressing. You can wash at the well. Help them. Hurry, it's almost the Sabbath! Motel, Yente was here. I know, I saw her. Tevye, I've something to say to you. Why should today be different? Tevye, I have something to tell you!
Maybe in a few weeks, I'll have saved up enough to download it. You could ask my father for my hand tonight. Lazar Wolf wants to see you.
