Fiddler on the Roof
Timms Centre for the Arts, University of Alberta
(Corner of 87th Avenue and 112th Street)

This affectionately humorous portrait of life in a Jewish village in Tsarist Russia centres on Tevye, a milkman-philosopher and father of 5, as he tries to uphold tradition in an ever changing political and social landscape. This musical, full of recognizable tunes like “If I were a rich man” and “Sunrise, sunset”, illuminates universal themes of family struggle and human perseverance with humour, warmth and honesty.

Tickets are $40 and can be bought here: https://operanuova.pleasantticketsolutions.com/Browse/Index/83cfe294-831e-4d74-97cd-a1b00181d523

** I suggest seating area 2, having looked at the map. I've never been to this location, however.

    Tevye was perfectly cast. Saturday`s matinee was with Cast B - the women who played Golda was not lead performer for the show, which made some scenes feel a bit awkward. Live orchestral music filled the Timms theatre! There are a few more performances (lit has a imited run). If you have a free afternoon mid-week, try the 1:30 pm show on June 26 or the final matinee June 29 (both with Cast A) and closing Saturday night (again, Cast B). Overall, a wonderful afternoon that carried the audience away to another time and place. Highly recommend.

    How much fun was that! Great story and effort by a large cast. One thing missing...wireless mics for some of the cast that didn't quite have the pipes to fill the big room. Catch this one if you can!!

    Hi Julia. Do you have a ticket? Just curious if there are assigned seats or if it's festival style. If you post your ticket number then I can buy a ticket near you (or in the same section).

    All of the seats in the Timms are pretty good. The first three rows are a bit too close however, as you end up with a stiff neck by intermission.

      Okay, did some investigating and seats are assigned. The $40 price includes GST, and there are no fees for buying tickets in advance - woo hoo!!! Hope I can find a seat in your section.
