A grand tradition of song, dance, and musical splendor returns to the screen when FIDDLER ON THE ROOFdebuted on Blu-ray April 5th from MGM Home Entertainment in honor of the 40th anniversary of the classic film. Nominated for six Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Actor, Fiddler on the Roof is a universal story of hope and acceptance.  Fans will also be able to experience a new 7.1 audio track on the Blu-ray version, bringing the Oscar-winning music to life like never before.
