Sat 20 Jan, Main Stage
The award-winning Oxford Operatic Society returns to the Playhouse to do what they do best: bring a beloved musical to life.
Fiddler on the Roof is an enduringly popular show that’s been celebrated across the globe. Featuring hits such as If I Were A Rich Man, Matchmaker and Sunrise Sunset, it beautifully captures and comments on vital themes, while also demonstrating plenty of heart.
The story follows Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman who lives in a small Ukrainian village with his wife and five strong minded daughters. But as a rapidly changing world threatens to displace them, is all their squabbling for nothing? OX OPS’ production is sure to be filled with gorgeous song and strong performances from some of Oxford’s best non-professional performers, demonstrating the ever-relevant nature of this timeless classic.
