Set during the Russian Revolution of 1905, Fiddler on the Roof tells the story of a Jewish community in the Russian town of Anatevka. Tevye, Golde and their five daughters are told by a local matchmaker that a local man wants to marry Tzeitel, their eldest daughter. However, Tzeitel already knows who she wants to marry: Motel Kamzoil. With conflicting desires for marriage, Tzeitel and Motel beg Tevye to let Tzeitel marry who she wishes. Thankfully, the pair are able to marry each other but the celebrations are quickly halted when the brutality of Russian fighting forces sweeps through the congregation. As more of the daughters look set to marry off, Tevye and Golde reconsider their own marriage and love to each other.
