"Rich, touching and funny": Orpha Phelan's 'Fiddler on the Roof' at Malmö Opera

6 September 2017

Director Orpha Phelan returns to Malmö Opera with Fiddler on the Roof which is as relevant and poignant today as when it was first created. Having previously directed Jenůfa and The Tales of Hoffmann in 2011, and La Bohème in 2014 with the Malmö Opera, her latest production opens with outstanding success.

Performances run until January 2018.
You can see the trailer here, and a selection of photos from the production here.

"Timeless drama in a fine setting."
Martin Lagerholm, Kristianstadsbladet

"Irish director Orpha Phelan and her artistic team have managed to capture its gripping symbolism. … Malmö opera has launched the autumn season with a very strong and powerful musical."
