The Fiddler Phenomenon
New Lehrhaus presents this four-part virtual series to examine different aspects of “Fiddler on the Roof,” including its origin in Sholom Aleichem’s Tevye stories and the figure of Yente the matchmaker. The series will focus on the music, lyrics, and choreography of both the Broadway production and the film, and explore the impact Fiddler has had on Jewish culture and the wider world.
