Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof is a musical by Jerry Bock (music), Joseph Stein (book) and Sheldon Harnick (lyrics). It has been translated into the Norwegian as Spellemann på taket, also spelled Spelemann på taket. The musical builds on a short story collection by Sholem Aleichem.

It exists in more than one Norwegian translation. Hartvig Kiran has translated it into New Norwegian and Svein Sturla Hungnes has translated it into Norwegian Bokmal.

The story centres on Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman in Russia in 1905. He is married to Golde and together they have five strong-willed daughters.
