A Fiddler on his Route

Music theater performance by Micha Molthoff and band

Florence, 1993. The Uffizi Museum is heavily damaged in a bomb attack, revealing the wooden structure of the building. Violin maker Jamie Lazzara takes parts of this 16th-century wood to her workshop and constructs a beautiful violin there; the San Filippo. An exceptional instrument brought to life by Micha Molthoff.

A Fiddler on his Route is about this violin and its player, who visited many countries and performed a wide range of musical styles. From the classical melodies of Tchaikovsky, tango by Astor Piazzolla to the works of John Mayer and the folk songs of Amsterdam’s Jordaan.

Violinist Micha Molthoff, also a composer, has played with artists such as Herman van Veen, Toon Hermans and Ute Lemper. His music can be heard in various films, documentaries, and theater productions.

A Fiddler On His Route is the musical biography of a man and his instrument, their fusion, and the versatility of melodies inspired by travels across continents.

Fun fact: Violin maker Jamie Lazzara also built violins for Barack Obama and Itzhak Perlman by commission.
