What do Israel and Les Misérables have in common? If nothing else, anthems immortalized by Dudu Fisher.
The cantor turned Broadway star has performed stirring versions of both Hatikvah and Jean Valjean’s Who Am I, among countless others, throughout his decades in the music world.
So breathtaking is Fisher’s voice, in fact, that he was once invited to take part in a royal command performance for Queen Elizabeth, whom Fisher regaled with selections from Les Misérables.
Perhaps even more improbable for a Shomer-Shabbat cantor from Petach Tikvah: an annual gig in Branson, Missouri, where he taped his acclaimed 2014 PBS special, The Voice of Broadway.
Now fresh off his latest Branson engagement, Fisher brings his new PBS special, Jerusalem, to the sanctuary of Temple Emanu-El. Come hear the legend . . . live!
Special introduction by Israeli Ambassador Dani Dayan.
In partnership with PBS.
