This morning, I started watching videos of different renditions of the Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof. (Check out this one in Japanese!!! I have always been intrigued by the universal appeal of this show despite its finely etched specificity; perhaps it's one of the best examples of the magic that happens at the intersection of the archetypal and personal. At the play's opening, we see Yiddish writer Sholom Aleichim's colorful character, Tevye, the Dairyman, father of five daughters, struggle to reconcile his traditional beliefs with an impinging modern world while a fiddler perched on a roof is playing in background. This image of the precarious fiddler appears in other turn of the century Jewish artists' work, most notably Marc Chagall's.
