The story revolves around the family of a local dairyman, Tevye, and involves the conflict of the new and the traditional, as he battles with the coming of age of his five daughters. The action takes place in the small Russian village of Anatevka. It is 1905 and the eve of the Russian revolution, whose very presence brings the production to its moving conclusion.
