TRAVEL back in time to 1905 with the latest show from Knowle Operatic Society.

TRAVEL back in time to 1905 with the latest show from Knowle Operatic Society.

The group will be performing Fiddler on the Roof - a popular musical set in a poor part of the Ukraine.

It tells the story of Tevye, a poor milkman who has five children to support.

The put-upon dad has to wrestle with the traditions of his Jewish faith and the wishes of his headstrong daughters.

Jenny Bent, from the Knowle Operatic Society, said: “It is a celebration of a way of life that has now disappeared and a musical show full of haunting melodies and lively music.”

One of the show’s best-known numbers is “If I Were a Richman” - made famous by the actor Topol in one of the Broadway runs.

Fiddler on the Roof will be on from March 8-13.

Tickets are available from the box office on 0121 704 6962.
