Did you believe that Sholem Aleikhem’s Tevye the Milkman spoke English and sang in English?
In this workshop, we will learn some of the beautiful songs from the musical Fiddler on the Roof, in Yiddish, as they were sung in the first production outside the United States in Israel, “A fidler afn dakh.” Participants will have the lyrics in Yiddish (phonetics) and will be able to sing along.

Price: $25 per individual workshop.
