An evening of ballet with klezmer music and the Sinfonieorchester Basel

Tevye is forced to watch as his family falls apart and his home is taken away. Yet he never loses his faith in God and his truly irrepressible humour. This story is based on the hit musical ‹The Fiddler on the Roof›. The evening has been newly set to music by Olivier Truan and his band Kolsimcha. The Sinfonieorchester Basel plays contemporary klezmer music.

‹Tevye› is an enchanting ballet with even more enchanting music.

About the work

NEW! Digital bookstall

Together with our dramaturgy team, Basel’s arts centre Bider and Tanner has been curating the bookstall for our performances for many years. The wide range of books, CDs, DVDs, catalogues and even sheet music is now available 24/7 in the online shop. It’s worth taking a regular look.
