Stempenyu is a gifted musician. He leads a band of klezmers that performs at weddings. People come from all over Poland and Russia to hear him and his band. Apart from being an admired musician, Stempenyu is also a renowned heartbreaker, and many women are caught in his net. One day, Stempenyu falls in love with the beautiful, but alas married, Rochele. Matters become complicated when Rochele falls in love with him too.
Shalom Aleichem, one of the greatest Jewish writers and the storyteller behind Fiddler on the Roof, in a heartrending story of missed opportunity, a touching and humorous human story that is all theatre and dance, with its abundance of colorful characters, some of whom cannot find their own place and so fulfill themselves through others. In the struggle between spiritual and material, music and Torah study, ancient and modern, what would we choose?
