Sheldon Harnick - Jerry Bock - Joseph Stein’s highly successful musical Fiddler on the Roof is closing the year 2021 at the Hungarian Theatre in Cluj. The performance directed by László Béres will take place on Friday, December 31, at 7 pm, in the theatre's Main Hall.
"The cream of the crop at the theatre makes their appearance as the inhabitants of the cosy village of Anatevka. They can do a synchronised and quite lively dance. They are not your average, ‘choreographer-drilled’ and ‘string-puppet’ dance troupe, all wearing the same uniform grin, or curling their lips downwards on command. They all have individual personalities and auras. I don’t know where to fix my eyes, since I want to see each of them at the same time. They are instantly endearing. They don’t press forward unless it’s needed; they’re content to stay in the background, yet their presence is still distinctly felt. They have a decisive role in making this show such a hit." – stated critic Gábor Bóta about the performance.
