Prom 11: Fiddler on the Roof
Recorded at the BBC Proms 2015, Bryn Terfel and Grange Park Opera join the BBC Concert Orchestra under David Charles Abell for their production of Fiddler on the Roof.
Grange Park Opera bring their acclaimed production of Fiddler on the Roof to the BBC Proms. Bryn Terfel stars, joining the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor David Charles Abell.
Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's Fiddler on the Roof brims with numbers such as 'If I were a rich man', 'Sunrise, sunset' and 'Miracle of Miracles'. Hampshire's Grange Park Opera makes its Proms debut with a semi-staged performance of its new production starring Bryn Terfel as Tevye, the village milkman in pre-Revolutionary Russia trying, in vain, to bring up his five daughters within the time-honoured traditions of his Jewish forebears.
