Fiddler on the R oof T h e story of Fiddler on the R o o f is adapted from the stories of Sholom Aleichem by Joseph Stein, who gained one of the ten awards achieved by the show. Stein once said “Just as Marc Chagall expressed the lives, the dream s and aspirations of his people in his art, Sholom Aleichem put them into his stories” . He was the folk-singer of the ‘S h te tr, those small ramshackle poverty-stricken Jewish villages in Czarist-Russia. His tales caught the hunger, the hum our, the irony of a people maintaining an absurd pride under desperate circumstances. Like so many children of immigrants to American and W estern E urope, Joseph Stein was raised on the tales of Sholom Aleichem and when Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick, Jerom e Robbins and Stein decided to attempt a contemporary musical play based on his Tevye stories, Stein knew they would have to move far from them in content but resolved to rem ain true to the feeling and spirit of the original. Fiddler on the R o o f was first performed in New York in 1964 and since then has travelled round the world. T h e story goes that Tevye is the milkman of Anatevka. He has a loving but sharp-tongued wife, five lovely but unmarried daughters, a faithful but lame horse, a friendly but oppressed village. H e has no money but is on speaking terms with God. A natev ka in the Ukraine, just south of anywhere, is unrem arkable, only a meandering jumble of dismal houses hedged by corn and wheat fields, sprinkled with a market place, a butcher shop, a smithy, a synagogue, a Hebrew school, a tanner, a tailor and a tavern. There is also a fiddler on the roof. He is there, just Hke the village and just like Tevye, trying to scratch out a pleasant simple tune without breaking his neck. I t’s the tradition, and the people of A n atev k a sing of it. T h e Rathmines & Rathgar Musical Society presented the first am ateur production of Fiddler on the R o o f 'm the world in 1972.

The R & R . . . Reflections at 75 . . .

This is surely a time to pause — to look back with gratitude, and pride, on the great achievements of the Society, to many memorable productions and many heroic performances by its members. It is also a time to look forward, which we do with confidence, to many more years of success. The contribution of this Society to the musical life of Ireland — and Dublin in particular — is immeasurable. This contribution flows directly from the Society, in its own productions and indirectly, through many other musical societies where o ur m em bers perform and take with them the experience and disciplines learned in the R & R. O u r unique reputation has been earned through our determination; To achieve the highest possible standards in our performances; O u r dedication to the hard grind of rehearsal; O u r loyalty to our am ateur status; O u r policy of recruiting new, young, active members to secure the future of the Society; O u r confidence in the ability of the Society to undertake and manage complex productions to a successful conclusion. B ut the R & R is more than that. It is a Society of friendship and good humour, a caring Society, where individual talent is respected and developed. In it you will find — inspiration and challenge; passion and com passion; determ ination and scholarship; unselfish commitment; loyalty and integrity; all working together in a great tradition of service to the Society, for the benefit of the community. As long as this great Society, which has endured well for 75 turbulent years in an area of endeavour, where the golden rule is “that there are no golden rules"; as long as it is true to its cherished ideals, and remains united, in one spirit and one purpose, then the Rathmines and Rathgar Musical Society has greater promise for the future than has yet been achieved. Stephen A . Faul, H o no rary G eneral Secretary and Chairman of the Executive Committee.
