Dudu Fisher Concert
His career began in his country, Israel, years ago. He studied at the Academy of Music in Tel-Aviv and had the opportunity to work exclusively with several great cantors of the previous generation. In addition to its own synagogue works, he was only 22 years old when he was invited as a cantor to the Great Synagogue in Tel-Aviv. Also, Fisher has travelled throughout the world in order to reach the traditional Hasidic, Yiddish and cantoral music to new audiences. Recently, he has been invited to the New York Synagogue in Manhattan as a cantor.
Watching the musical "Les Miserables" in one of his trips to London in 1986 has been a life-changing event for him. Stephen Pimlot, the director of the Israel version of the musical, has chosen Fisher, who had no theatrical experience, to play Jean Valjean, one of the leading roles. The musical "Les Miserables" has been the longest standing musical in Israel, and Fisher has become a superstar. Fisher was invited to London in 1988 to take part in a performance hosted by the Queen of England. The performance was a special version of the "Les Miserables". Fisher has been invited by Cameron Mackintosh, the producer of the musical, to Broadway and London's West End to play the role of Jean Valjean. This role also has carried Fisher to the football World Cup final at Wembly Stadium to sing together with the other four Valjeans. During his long career, he has made album records over twenty. He has dubbed Moses in the Israeli version of "The Prince of Egypt" by Stephen Spielberg. He has sung together with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Maestro Zubin Mehta. He has recorded the album Show Tunes with the Londra Symphony Orchestra. He has also performed with the Baltimore and Queens Symphony Orchestras. He has sung for the Thai Royal Family and the President and Senator Clinton as well as the British Royal Family. Fisher is the first Israeli artist who has been allowed to sing in the pre-perestroika Soviet Union. Fisher has played in several dramas, such as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," "Handle Nidra", and "Over the Rainbow" and "Stairways to Heaven" by Lalo Shifrin and Avi Koren. "Never on Sunday", Fisher's first one-man show, was opened in the Off-Broadway's Jewish Repertory Theatre in 1999. Fisher has performed in the Israeli stages with the musical "The Rothschilds" by Jerry Bock and Sharman Yellen from January until April 2001. Shortly after, he has been awarded the prize of "Liberty Award" in the Lower East Side Festival held to celebrate contributions to the Jewish Culture in America. In October 2002, Dudu wowed his audiences once again with its single show, "Something Old, Something New", written by Richard Joy Alexander. We can also add his successful acting in the film "The Road to Glory" to Fisher's achievements.
