Fiddler On The Roof

Two of Tevye’s daughters have broken with tradition and selected their own husbands. Now his third daughter has married – without Tevye’s permission – a man outside of their religion, a gentile. These and other events have pushed Tevye to a breaking point.

Chava

Papa. Papa! Papa, I’ve been looking everywhere for you. Papa, stop! At least listen to me! Papa. I beg you to accept us.

Tevye

Accept them? How can I accept them? Can I deny everything I believe in? On the other hand, can I deny my own daughter? On the other hand, how can I turn my back on my faith, my people? If I try and bend that far, I’ll break. On the other hand… No. There is no other hand. No, Chava! No!

Chava

But, Papa!

Tevye

No! No!

Chava

Papa!

Tevye

No!

Chava

Papa!
